Professional access allocations

You allocate professional access to an identified user to allow the user to access streams and apps within a Qlik Sense site.

The professional access is intended for users who need access to all features in a Qlik Sense installation. A user with professional access can create, edit, and publish sheets or apps, and make full use of the available features, including administration of a Qlik Sense site.

There is a direct relationship between the access type (professional access) and the user. If you use a license with serial number and control number, the following happens when you deallocate professional access: If the access type has been used within the last seven days, the access type is put in quarantine. If it has not been used within the last seven days, the professional access is released immediately. You can reinstate quarantined professional access, to the same user, within seven days.

If you use a signed license key, and the number of access allocations is reduced, the user can be excluded. Read more under Status.

The Professional access allocations overview lists all users with professional access. The following table presents the available fields and buttons. By default, only some of the fields are displayed. You can use the column selector (') to add fields.

Tip: You can adjust the column width by dragging the header border.

Name of the user with an allocated (or quarantined) professional access.

Deleted user is displayed if the user is deleted but is still in quarantine. When the quarantine period is over, the deleted user is removed from the overview.

User directory User directory that the user is imported from.

Status of the professional access:

Allocated means that professional access is allocated to the identified user and the user can access the hub and apps.

Quarantined (only in licenses with serial number) means the following:

  • The user cannot access streams and apps on the hub.
  • Professional access was previously allocated to the user and thereafter deallocated.
  • During the quarantine period, professional access can be reinstated to the original user.

Excluded is displayed when you use a license with a signed license key and the number of allocated assignments is larger than defined by the license. In this case, the most recently assigned users are excluded until the number of allocations matches the number defined by the license. If more access allocations are made available, or if the admin removes access for others, access is re-allocated to excluded users. Exclusion can occur, for example, when the number of assignments in the license is reduced.

Last used Date and time when the user accessed the hub.
ID User access ID.
Created Date and time when the professional access was created.
Last modified Date and time when the professional access was last modified.
