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. 

Index:

 

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.

Overview:

  • 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.

Details:

  • 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

Assigning Analyzer Capacity in Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS:

No setup is required. If no Professional or Analyzer License was assigned, Analyzer Capacity is automatically allocated. 

See Enabling dynamic license assignment for details. 

 

Create an Analyzer Capacity License Rule in Qlik Sense Client-Managed:

  2. Go to Licenses Management
  3. Open Analyzer Capacity Rules in the right-hand menu (See fig 1)
  4. Click Create new 

    Fig 1Fig 1

  5. Provide details for your rule. In our example, we are enabling users in the group capacity to receive Analyzer Capacity Licenses. 

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

    Populate the conditions accordingly. See Fig 2.

    If you are looking to provide access for anonymous users, see How to allow Anonymous Hub access in Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows.

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

Hello, @Sonja_Bauernfeind !

Please consider the following scenario:

I have 20 Analyzer licenses and 01 Capacity license, in a multi-tenant SaaS/cloud environment.

I know that certain users access the Sense cloud only once a month, for a short time, so I would like them to always use the Capacity license. On the other hand, for users who consume a lot, I would like to establish them with the conventional Analyzer

How can I configure rules to meet this scenario?

Regards!

Is an Analyzer Capacity unit (6 minutes) consumed when a user-self-subscribed Sheet Subscription is sent by a schedule?

Hello @msan 

Can you confirm if this is the feature you mean? Scheduling reports with subscriptions 

If so, receiving the report will not consume capacity. Opening the report and navigating to the app, however, will.

All the best,
Sonja

Hi @Sonja_Bauernfeind,

in https://help.qlik.com/en-US/cloud-services/Subsystems/Hub/Content/Sense_Hub/Introduction/analyzer-ca...

it is said that 6 minutes units in Qlik Sense SaaS Enterprise are assigned per app, so if I open 5 apps on the same browser within 6 minutes, 30 minutes are allocated.

Is that true? If yes, why this policy?

Thank you very much!
