Document call can modify document ?


i have a named licens of qlikview. I created a document and I released it assigning a document call to an user.

I want this user can modify document.

I want this document can be modified by users have named calls and this user that have a document call for this document.

But QlikView return a warning where it indicates that the document is created by another user.

The document was created by me, that I have a named call. This user have a document call, but I want he can modify this document like I can modify it.

No problem opening documet by 'Open in Server...' menù item.

Where i'm wronging.

Thank you for your replay.

Re: Document call can modify document ?

Hello, Massimo

   Users can not modify the QlikView document through the server beyond the creation of bookmarks, notes and Server Objects.

When it comes to develope over a QlikView document they need to use the QlikView Desktop (which I believe they are already using base on the error that you say they get).

The licensing of the QlikView Desktop has nothing to do with the fact thay they have Named CALS or Document CALS assigned.

If you want to license their QlikView Desktops, they can use the "Open in Server..." and by opening one single QlikView document, QlikView Server will lease one Named CAL to license that specific QlikView Desktop allowing that user to modify or create as many QlikView documents as they want for 30 days (after 30 days they have to renew their license).

All this is possible as long as your server is not a Test Server and the check: "Allow license lease" is activated on the Management Console => System => Licenses => Server => CALs


Re: Document call can modify document ?

AFAIK, to modify a document you need a Qlikview Desktop license or a leased cal.

I think you only can lease a license for named cal, not document cal.

You can find a detailed description at page 2, 3 and 4 of

QlikView License Leasing Technical Brief Paper.pdf

From the above pdf document

" ......

License Types

License Lease is only available to those users who have obtained a Named User CAL

as this license type facilitates both online & offline (QlikView Desktop) use. Document

CALs, Session CALs & Usage CALs are all online licenses only meaning the user must be

connected to the server to analyze their data.
