Management console

The management console is used for managing licenses, user assignments, manage spaces, themes, and extensions in cloud editions of Qlik Sense. The management console should not be confused with the Qlik Management Console (QMC), which is used for managing Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows. Only users with Tenant Admin role have access to the management console.

You access the management console by adding /console to your tenant address: https://<your tenant address>/console, or by using the navigation link Tenant settings under user profile in the hub.

Currently, the management console supports a fully enabled Qlik Cloud Services deployment, or a single deployment of Qlik Sense Enterprise on Kubernetes.

Here you can find an overview of the main sections that compose the management console.

Licenses

The licenses section has three tabs: Overview, Assigned users, and License key.

Overview

Overview shows basic information about the license. In the Overview tab you can also add a license if needed.

License item Description
Professional

Consumed: number of users with professional access.

Total: Total availability of professional access.

Analyzer

Consumed: number of users with analyzer access.

Total: Total availability of analyzer access.

Analyzer capacity (minutes)

Consumed: amount of minutes spent.

Total: Total amount of minutes available per month. Overage is required after the total amount has been spent.

Overage. Overage can either be limited, to the amount stated, or unlimited.

For more information about analyzer capacity, see Analyzer capacity license.

Expires Date of license expiration.
Quotas

 

Shared spaces Consumed: number of shared spaces.

Quota limit: Quota limit can either be limited, to the amount stated, or unlimited.

In-memory app size Maximum app memory size.

Assigned users

Assigned users shows information about users and license types. There are also buttons for removing assignments and assigning analyzer or professional access.

License item Description
Name Name of user.
User ID Unique ID for the user.
IdP subject User identifier in the identity provider (IdP). This value is needed when adding new users from the IdP user database.
License License type assigned to the user: professional, analyzer, or analyzer capacity (also known as analyzer time).
Status

When the number of allocated assignments is larger than defined by the license, some users will be excluded. The users will then no longer have access to the hub or the management console. The Status column for the users will show Excluded. Those who most recently were assigned access will be excluded. They will remain excluded until the number of allocations matches the number defined by the license. If more access assignments are made available, or if the admin removes access for others, access will be reallocated to excluded users.

License key

In the License key tab you can change a license if needed. To change the license: paste the license key in the text box and click Submit.

Users

The users page displays all the users that have logged into the tenant. If a user has a certain role (tenant admin), it is displayed in the roles field.

Use the search to find users. Use the buttons for assigning and removing tenant admins. For each user in the table, you also have a button to the far right where you can assign and remove the tenant admin role.

User status

The following are the available user statuses.

Status Description Status can be changed to
active User is fully registered and can consume according to the assigned license. disabled
disabled User license is removed and that user cannot access their account or use the product. active

Spaces

The spaces section has two tabs:

  • Overview shows the current number of shared spaces, and the creation date of the latest space.
  • Spaces shows a table with space name, space type, space owner, description of the space, and the space creation date. You also have buttons for deleting a space, changing the owner, editing the space, and creating a new space.

The following are the space types:

  • Personal spaces: In personal spaces, only the owner can edit apps, that is, you cannot co-develop in personal spaces. You can share apps outside your space, but only for viewing.
  • Shared spaces: Shared spaces allow for easy co-development of apps within a closed group of users. What actions you can perform with an app in a space is determined by permissions and your license. With a professional license you can create a shared space in the hub. You can then add new members to your shared space and assign them permissions.

Web

You can create web integrations to add origins that are whitelisted to access the tenant. The web integration containing the whitelist is connected to an ID used in for example a mashup that is connecting to your tenant. When a request arrives, Qlik Sense Enterprise confirms that the request derives from a whitelisted domain and then approves the request, else not.

Click ... to the far right to reach options for copying the ID, editing, or deleting the web integration.

Property Description
Name

Name of the web integration.

ID

Unique ID assigned to the web integration when it is created.

Number of origins

Number of domains contained in the white-list.

Last updated

Displays when the web integration was last updated.

Date created

On-demand data

Property Description
On-demand app generation

When the service is switched from enabled to disabled, any pending requests to generate on-demand apps are allowed to finish. But once the service has been disabled, no new requests to generate apps are accepted.

This service is disabled by default.

Managing on-demand app generation

Groups

Groups are used for access control of users, and can optionally be automatically created from idp-groups.

Property Description
Enable auto-creation of groups

When enabled, groups are inherited from the identity provider so that access can be granted to the same groups of users that exist in the IdP. This simplifies access administration compared to granting access to one user at a time.

It is required that you use single sign-on and have administrative access to your IdP to configure groups.

Note that new IdP groups will show up in Qlik Sense Enterprise as users log in (or log in again) to the Qlik Sense Enterprise tenant. IdP groups are not imported all at the same time. Instead, IdP groups are discovered at login time. Further, only groups associated with users in Qlik Sense Enterprise will be available as described earlier.

Dynamic license assignment

With dynamic license assignment, you can automate assignment of access to users. For details, see: Assigning access to users.

Property Description
Enable dynamic assignment of professional access

When enabled, users who log in are automatically assigned professional access, if available.

Enable dynamic assignment of analyzer access

When enabled, and no professional access is available, users who log in are automatically assigned analyzer access, if available.
