QlikView & Qlik Sense Unified (Dual Use) License - User Allocation
With a Unified license (formerly called Dual Use License) the legacy QlikView license is complemented with a Qlik Sense license that can be applied to the QlikView server as it includes QlikView entitlement license attributes. Such license needs to be activated with the Signed License Key (SLK). When a customer enters an Analytics Modernization Program (AMP, formerly known as Dual Use program), QlikView CALs (e.g. Named User CALs, Document CALS, Session CALs and Usage CALs) are converted into Professional User,Analyzer User, and Analyzer Capacity User allocations based on the Analytics Modernization Program conversion ratios.
Here are two scenarios:
I. If a customer transitions to AMP with on-premise (client-managed) Qlik software (e.g. converts to perpetual estate or convert to subscription QSE on Windows), a Unified License containing the converted quantity of Professional Users, Analyzer Users and Analyzer Capacity would be delivered. This license contains a customized Qlik Sense Enterprise Signed License Key (SLK) which can also be deployed on QlikView Server and/or QlikView Publisher. If a user is assigned a Professional or Analyzer user license, this assignment information is synchronized to all Qlik Sense and QlikView deployments activated using this Unified License key. As such one user just needs one license to access the entire Qlik software platform (regardless if it is Qlik Sense or QlikView).
In this scenario, as long as the QlikView Server and Qlik Sense edition use the same Identity Provider (IdP) the user can access apps on both environments consuming only one user license allocation.
If the user license is reallocated in any of the systems to a different user, the same will occur across both QlikView and Qlik Sense environments.
II. If a customer transitions to AMP with QSE SaaS add-on, a QSE SaaS tenant may use a Unified License for the on-premise deployment. The customer is able to upload QlikView document prepared by the on premise QlikView software directly into QSE SaaS for distribution.
A QlikView Server or a Qlik Publisher software can be activated in two ways:
1) Using a legacy method with 16-digit QlikView license key and the corresponding control number
2) Using a modern Unified License with Signed License Key containing needed QlikView Server and Publisher Service attribute(s). In this latter scenario, user license assignment (Professional/Analyzer) and analyzer capacity would be synchronized with other deployments using the same Signed License Key as it is done in the Unified License model
If the customer opts to remain in Perpetual licensing, the existing QlikView license model can be retained. Otherwise, if the customer opts for conversion into Subscription licensing model, a set of QlikView subscription license attributes mirroring the existing QlikView perpetual license key setup would be delivered such that the customer switch to the subscription QlikView keys without the need for an immediate migration project towards using Unified licensing.
