Changing the license

The license properties can be changed after they have been set for the first time.

Changing a LEF license

Updating the LEF does the following:

  • User-based license: Changes the number of professional and analyzer access allocations for the Qlik Sense site.
  • Token-based license: Changes the number of tokens for the Qlik Sense site. You use the tokens on access types to give the users access to the hub.
Note: In addition to the site license accepting licenses with serial and control number, there is also the license with a signed key. You must use a license with a signed key if you are licensing analyzer capacity access. Please note that after changing to a license with a signed key, you cannot return to using the old serial and control number license model.
