Before you can start using Qlik Sense Desktop, you need to authenticate yourself against a Qlik Sense Enterprise server. You need to have a working network connection to enable authentication.

The following requirements need to be met:

  • A functioning network connection to the Qlik Sense Enterprise Client-Managed Server or Enterprise SaaS/Business tenant.
  • Use of a Professional license. Analyzer licenses do not support Desktop Authentication
    For legacy token license: User and Login Passes allow Desktop Authentication
  • No TEST license. Test licenses disallow the use of authentication links 
  • Compatibility must be met. See Qlik Sense Desktop patch process and compatibility with on-premise installs and Qlik Cloud .
After you have been authenticated once, internet access is not required to continue using Qlik Sense Desktop. However, you have to re-authenticate yourself if thirty days have passed since you last authenticated.

Hi, 

I'm coming from the year 2022. Is this Qlik Sense Desktop Authentication still have the same requirement ?

I have test by giving the User allocate to the analyzer license on qlik SaaS, however that user can authenticate to the Qlik Sense Desktop.

Hello @fatinfazrizanor and @Mathilde_Ur 

I've verified what we have documented with our agents. If you have no internet connection you will be able to use Desktop for 30 days before having to reauthenticate. 

See 

Starting Qlik Sense Desktop | Qlik Sense on Windows Help 
Starting Qlik Sense Desktop | Qlik Cloud Help

respectively for more information.

All the best,
Sonja
