How to determine count of users who have named CALs

All,

I am trying to create a custom governance dashboard for my work area and am running into some difficulty with a couple of the expressions I am attempting to use.

What I am looking for is:

1) Determine how many distinct users had 1 or more sessions on our production access point (where the Prod server names are represented by the variable 'vProdNodes') within the last 30-days and

2) How many of those distinct users have named CALs?

For #1, I'm thinking I could do that this way:

=Count({<Node_Name={$(vProdNodes)}, SessionDateNum={">=$(=NUM(Today())-30)"}, Session_Start_Count={">0"}>} Authenticated_User)

For #2 I'm stuck.   Let's say that in my load script I have a field I called NamedCALUser that is populated with either a 1 or 0, depending on whether my corresponding Authenticated_User values match a table of NamedCALUsers that I loaded into dashboard by their production IDs.

So basically out of #1, I'm looking for a count of a subset of those records where NamedCALUser = 1.   Would someone please explain to me how to do that?

Thanks in advance for the help!

Re: How to determine count of users who have named CALs

In the QlikView Server event*.log, you should see  a message like:

100NoticeLicense: License leased to user ROB-WORK2\ROB

each time a license is leased or a lease is renewed That should tell you who has a leased license and is launching their desktop.

You may also want to check out David Vasseur's CAL Manager tool. Very useful.

It sounds like you are loading the Sessions Logs? There is field called [Cal Type] in the Session records.

Yes, session logs are a portion of what we are bringing in.   I see exactly what you're talking about regarding the [Cal Type] field.   With regard to measuring CAL utilization, are you aware of a particular field or method that we can tell if a user is utilizing their named CAL "enough" by our standard?  What I mean by that is, I would hate to revoke a named CAL from someone who may not be working on an access point but was using their desktop client to collaborate with other developers / power users.  When a user logs into their desktop client, does that ping somehow against the license server and is it recorded somewhere that I can access?   My entire goal with this is to ensure that our licenses are utilized by the people who need them and use them regularly.
