This article covers the details of how to license a Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows server with a Signed License Key (SLK).
To apply a Signed License Key, a secure network connection is required to be established: A signed license key requires connectivity to license.qlikcloud.com. See List of IP Addresses behind license.qlikcloud.com and lef.qliktech.com for details.
It can establish in any of the security scenarios below:
All nodes in a Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows on-premise multi node environment need access to the license server.
How do we reuse the signed license key ? Is it possible to reuse the key once we decide to uninstall the environment where the SLK is used and install fresh Qlik sense in a different region or Data center ?
That is possible, yes. Note that the Signed License key will sync user allocation. So prior to moving servers and/or decommissioning the old server, we'd recommend you delete the current user assignments, as they will otherwise be carried over.
All the best,Sonja
Dear @Sonja_Bauernfeind & @Andre_Sostizzo ,
I would like to ask a question regarding access to https://license.qlikcloud.com. In a multi-node deployment, do all servers (master & rim nodes) need to access the aforementioned URL? As far as I know, Qlik Repository Service runs on every node and handles licensing among other activities .
Many thanks for your time & answers.
All nodes require access, not only the central node (Qlik Sense).
I'll update the articles on this topic to clarify this. Thank you for asking!
