System Requirements

 

Qlik AutoML is available to customers with the following subscription products:

Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS

Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS Add-On to Client-Managed

Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS - Government (US) and Qlik Sense Business does not support Qlik AutoML

Hello @XM 

You are missing other options as well, such as uploading or creating a new app. Please review what role your user has assigned as you may not have the required permissions.

All the best,
Sonja

I am now in a try out ,  the entitlement is already 'professional', dose  it mean autoML is not applicable for try-out?

Hello @XM 

Trials have limited functionality. To use Qlik AutoML, you need either of these active subscriptions:

  • Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS
  • Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS Add-On to Client-Managed

Trial:

Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS subscription:

If you would like to trail Qlik AutoML, I would recommend getting in touch with a local sales office in your region (or your Qlik Account Manager if you have an active partnership) to see what we can arrange for you.

All the best,
Sonja

Hey @XM ,

Yes,  I agree with @Sonja_Bauernfeind . Please contact your Account Representative or sales team to confirm if AutoML is in your current subscription.

Best,
