Activating the license

The first time you start the QMC, the Site license properties page is displayed. All fields are empty and you must enter the license information from the License Enabler File (LEF). This makes you the root administrator (RootAdmin) for the Qlik Sense site.

Note: In addition to the site license accepting LEF based 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 LEF based license model.

Do the following:

  1. Fill out the mandatory fields.

    The property group Site license contains properties related to the license for the Qlik Sense system. All fields are mandatory and must not be empty.

    Property name Description
    Owner name The user name of the Qlik Sense product owner.
    Owner organization The name of the organization that the Qlik Sense product owner is a member of.
    Serial number The serial number assigned to the Qlik Sense software.
    Control number The control number assigned to the Qlik Sense software.
    LEF access The License Enabler File (LEF) assigned to the Qlik Sense software.
  2. Expand LEF access and click Get LEF and preview the license to download a LEF file from the Qlik Sense LEF server. Alternatively, copy the LEF information from a LEF file and paste it in the text field.

    LEF was successfully retrieved is displayed.

    Note: Failed to get LEF from server is displayed if the serial number or control number is incorrect.
  3. Click Apply in the action bar to apply and save your changes.

    Successfully licensed is displayed.

  4. Click Close.

You have now activated the license. Next you need to allocate professional access or user access to yourself.

Note: You give users access to Qlik Sense by managing the access types: professional or analyzer access (user-based license) or user access or login access (token-based license), according to which consumption model you prefer for accessing Qlik Sense.
