License management

There are two license models: the serial and control number and the signed license key. These models define the terms of your license and the access types that you can allocate to users. With a signed license key, you need internet access (direct or through a proxy) to access the cloud-based license backend, for user assignments, analytic time consumption, and product activations.

There are two major license types: one based on access types, and one based on tokens.

  • Access types licenses are the Professional and Analyzer Users licenses (user-based) and Analyzer Capacity licenses (capacity-based). With a Professional and Analyzer Users license you can allocate professional access and analyzer access. With an Analyzer Capacity license you can allocate analyzer capacity access, where consumption is time based (analyzer time).
  • With a Qlik Sense Token license you use tokens to allocate access passes to users. You can allocate user access and login access.

An access type allows users to access the hub and apps within a Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows site.

Note: If you want to set up Qlik Cloud Services or Qlik Sense Enterprise on Kubernetes, please contact your Qlik representative or Qlik Support to obtain a valid license for the setup.
  • The License usage summary page displays the distribution of the different access types.

  • The Professional access allocations page displays an overview and you can allocate, deallocate, or reinstate professional access for users.

  • The Professional access rules page displays an overview and you can edit, delete, or create new professional access rules. The professional access rules are used to automatically allocate professional access.

  • The Analyzer access allocations page displays an overview and you can allocate, deallocate, or reinstate analyzer access for users.

  • The Analyzer access rules page displays an overview and you can edit, delete, or create new analyzer access rules. The analyzer access rules are used to automatically allocate analyzer access.

  • The User access allocations page displays an overview and you can allocate, deallocate, or reinstate user access for users.

  • The User access rules page displays an overview and you can edit, delete, or create new user access rules. The user access rules are used to automatically allocate user access.
