Aliasing a Tenant Name to your Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS Tenant can be very helpful if you were to make a mistake in creating the original tenant URL or if your company name was to change and you wanted it to reflect in your QCS environment. Note: The master hostname created during onboarding can not be changed at this time.
NOTE: Alias Host Name change can only be done with paid subscriptions. Display Name can be changed on Trials or Evals Tenant
Prior to May 2020: If you purchased your license before May 2020 please contact customer support (How to create a case) and request that TENANT_ALIAS=YES is added to your current license to allow the option to change a tenant hostname. Once confirmed from customer support that your license has been updated you can continue.
After May 2020:If you purchased you licenses after May 2020 please continue as documented below.
