Clarification on CAL Users

Hi Everyone,

I'm new to QlikView. As per my understand, "CALs are used to access QlikView Documents residing on the server from a Client Application by the users". So here users refers to Developers who wants to update some changes to the existing documents on the QlikView server or the end users who will be accessing Dashboards through access points?

Re: Clarification on CAL Users

User & Devloper both are seperate.

Developer: who builds the QV Dashboard for analysis.

Users/Customers: who use the QV dashboard for Analysis and Decision making which is usually used by CXO & Top Management...

CALs are mainly used & consumed by End Users or Your Customer which can be Named/Doc/Session/Usage as already shared to you.

For development purpose, QV Developer/Designer also use CALs

Re: Clarification on CAL Users

Hi Sreenu,

CAL's are used to access the reports in Accesspoint.

There are four different types of CALs available

  • Named CAL (an identified user on a server) - Access is based on user identity and valid for alldocuments on the server, that is any number of concurrent sessions from one user on one machine ata time is allowed.
  • Document CAL (an identified user within a given document) - Just as above, the access is based onuser identity, but the CAL is valid only for one document. If the same user connects to twodocuments using this licensing method, he will hence consume two Document CALs.
  • Session CAL - Each Session CAL allows one user on one computer to access QlikView documents,that is any number of concurrent sessions from one user on one machine at a time is allowed.Anonymous users are allowed, no identification of the client user is necessary.
  • Usage CAL - Each Usage CAL gives the right to initiate one session (single document) per running28-day period. The session may last a maximum of one hour. Any activity after the first hour hasexpired will count as a new session (albeit without visible interruption). No identification of theclient user is necessary.

Note! CALs are used for purposes of licensing only and they have nothing to do with user authentication for data access purposes.
