QlikView Server License

On the QlikView Server License tab, you activate, update, and consult the details of your QlikView Server (QVS) product license. The available options change based on what license you choose to activate: a license that requires serial and control number, or a license that requires a signed key.

Use Signed Key License

If selected, it shows only the field specific for licensing QlikView Server (QVS) with a signed key. If unselected, it shows only the field specific for licensing QlikView Server (QVS) with a serial number and control number.

Note: The license is checked every time a document is opened. If the time limit specified by the License Enabler File (LEF) is reached, the QVS automatically enters offline mode, which means that it is reachable from the QMC, but not operational. The OffDuty parameter indicates if the QVS is off duty.
