Analyzer Capacity Licenses can be assigned automatically based on Analyzer Capacity License Rules. These rules can be set up to provide Analyzer Capacity to users, groups, or anonymous users.

This article covers what function the license type has, how to assign it, and how to track usage. 



What is an Analyzer Capacity license?

The Qlik Sense Analyzer Capacity license type is automatically assigned to users not assigned a Professional or Analyzer license and consumes time during an active session with the minimum session length set to 6 minutes.


  • An Analyzer Capacity license type would typically be used by users not assigned to any of the available named user types (Professional or Analyzer).
  • The capabilities for the Analyzer Capacity license type are similar to the current Analyzer user type and supports the same features. 
  • Analyzer Capacity is available for:
  • Analyzer Capacity works with Both Signed License Key and Signed License Definition.


  • The minutes are based on a monthly subscription, which resets at 0:00 UTC time on the first day of the calendar month.
  • Consumption is in 6-minute blocks. No consumption during idleness.
  • Overage can be added to the subscription. See How to manage Overage for Analyzer Capacity.


How to assign Analyzer Capacity Licenses

    Name: Name of your rule
    Description: Description of your rule
    Actions: Allow access 

    Populate the conditions accordingly. See Fig 2.

  6. Click Apply
  7. All users in the defined group will now receive an Analyzer Capacity License.

Hello @mgranillo 

There are no rules available to restrict this. Are you interested in having this as a feature implemented?

If so, then I'd recommend leaving us an idea in our ideas forum: Suggest an Idea.


Thanks Sonja. I was just curious. It's not a big issue if it's not possible

Hello @florent007 

You can use Analyzer Capacity with QlikView! See Licensing QlikView | QlikView Help 

But I admit the article here isn't very clear as it focuses on "you need to have Qlik Sense version x installed", so I will clarify this in the article. I appreciate you reaching out!

Curious to know what the order of licencing is in the SLK model? Professional > Analyzer > Analyzer Capacity?

Take this scenario:

A user is apart of an Analyzer access rule, but they are also apart of a Analyzer capacity rule - which licence will be assigned to them?

Hello @lachlanwcast 

Capacity will always go last. The order you mentioned is correct.

First, a Professional license will be used. Then an Analyzer. Then a "general" pool (such as Analyzer Capacity with the modern license model or Session CAL with the old QlikView legacy licenses).

Though we do not recommend assigning a user to two rules as you need to consider possible latency issues or sync problems.
