[ASK] how to use document CAL properly?

one person can used one document cal or document cal is assign to one person at time.

but named cal you can suffle after use of first user.

if u want someone touse  independently then document cal is better option

for ex: your Ceo want to access data uninteruptable.

then document cal is better.

but u can assign named cal on basis of time period or used by first user

[ASK] how to use document CAL properly?

sorry Sunil

but i still don't get it clear

is it mean, that we still have to add more user in QMC->licenses->CAL ? even just for using 1 doc cal?

is there any tech documentation to implement doc user / named user?

[ASK] how to use document CAL properly?

see the basic difference


Named User CAL

•Based on User or Machine Identity

•Can access unlimited QlikView Documents on 1 QlikView Server

•User will always have access to QlikView Documents

DOC CAL

•Allows one user to open one Document

•License is perpetual

•License is associated with a Document and user

•Sold in increments of 100

Named Cal
Commonly deployed for users within an organization that need
  dedicated access to QlikView                      


Document CAL:
Commonly deployed for organizations that have QlikView deployed 
departmentally and users within each department only need access to specific QlikView documents

Re: [ASK] how to use document CAL properly?

does it means that

If I need to use 10 documents in server

while using document-Cal I need 10 cals,

if 2 people need to use them, they need 20 document-cals?

while using Name-Cal I need only 1 cals?

if 2 people need to use them all, then only need 2 cals?

Re: [ASK] how to use document CAL properly?

Name cal's are more expensive then doc cals, you need to keep this in mind. There is dynamic cal allocation. Once the doc cals are exceeded then the session cal will kick-in at that point of time.

You can use user cals in dynamic mode, i have used this in one of the client base

then one user logout the other user will be able to access any on the document available and if all the cals are in use then the other use trying to access will be getting an error ' User cal not available '

So 1 name cal  = right  for  1 person to open all document

while 1 document cal = right  for  1 person to open 1 specific document?
