Changing the license

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

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 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. Select License management on the QMC start page or from the StartS drop-down menu to display the overview.

  2. Select Site license in the panel to the right.

  3. Edit the fields.

    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.
