Qlik License Service: the advantages of QLS activation


Benefits of using an SLK


Using the Signed License Key makes more product and deployment options available to you.

Examples of these are:

  • Multi-site deployments, such as connecting a Qlik Sense Enterprise site with a QlikView Server deployment using Qlik Sense Enterprise license options. This is enabled by accepting a Dual-Use offer for each QlikView deployment that should be enabled for a Unified License scenario.
  • Multi-geo deployments, such as having Qlik Sense Enterprise sites in different locations using the same list of users.
  • Consumption-based licenses, such as Qlik Sense Enterprise Analyzer Capacity. This additional user license is possible to use in a single or multi-cloud scenario.

All the above is enabled by the use of the Signed License Key. This is made possible by the local deployment syncing all entitlement data (assigned users access, etc.) with all available deployments sharing the same SLK. The synchronization is done using the Qlik Licensing Services and our license backend hosted in Qlik Cloud.

If you are curious about more information around the Qlik Licensing Service, see the Qlik Licensing Service Reference Guide.
