Professional License allocated users needs to be restricted to editing?

We have 284 Professional licenses and zero analyser licenses. We updated the license key yesterday. Previously we only had User access allocations, but after the update we realised that there is 2 new license type, i.e. Professional – and Analyser access.

We restricted users via security rules, when user access allocation was still active, but now that all the license types are professional, it appears that the professional access overrides the security rules. We urgently need to restrict some users from editing anything and just “read” information. We eventually going to have all licenses as professional licenses and need a permanent solution please.

It seems you're asking a Qlik Sense question in a forum called "QlikView License & User Management". For better feedback, consider moving your discussion to a forum like Qlik Sense Installation, Deployment & Management by following the steps outlined here:  QlikCommunity Tip: How to move your discussion thread

BTW: as far as I know, QlikView dropped the Analyser/Developer/Professional-licensing model as far back as v9 in 2008 or 2009


Thanks man, appreciate the guidance


You will need to set up/modify rules to assign Professional licenses only to developers and Analyzer only to users who are not expected to develop apps. The Professional license is supposed to do that exactly: develop, administer and consume.
