Qlik SAP Connector: Activating/updating license 

Video Transcript:

Hi and Welcome to Qlik Fix
This video demonstrates how to activate the Qlik SAP Connector or update the license in use.
After installing the SAP Connector either in a Qlik Sense or QlikView environment, the connector executable files are placed in this location. (C:\Program Files\Common Files\QlikTech\Custom Data\)
In order to activate the SAP Connector, under the QvSAPSqlConnector folder, run the QvSAPSqlConnector.exe file.
Under the Help drop down button, click on Update license.
If internet connection is available use the first option. Otherwise, select second option "Enter license text" and used full LEF information.
If the LEF content is unknown it can be retrieved via the Support Portal. See the knowledge base article "How to request a control number and LEF" in Qlik Community.
Fill in the 16-digit License key, Control number, and remaining fields, then click Update. If successful it will be indicated with this message.
The LEF information is retrieved and stored in the Lef.txt file under this location. (C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Custom Data\QvSAPConnector)
If licensing for use with QlikView the license update may be triggered via QlikView Desktop by selecting one of the SAP connector options, and clicking Connect.
If the QvSAPSqlConnector.exe option is selected, the same interface mentioned is displayed where the license can be updated under Help, Update License.
