How to add CAL license Key to a QlikView Desktop

Hi guys,

My client has purchased SBE  , and have 5 CAL licenses.

Question is.

1) How to add in license key for 5 users. If the 5 users would want to use qlikview desktop, how to add in licensen key on each of their laptop?

2) If I chose to lease license, for 5 license keys, how many users can I lease license to?

Rgds,

Jim

Re: How to add CAL license Key to a QlikView Desktop

The CAL's belong to the SBE which meant you couldn't give the licences directly to a client else the client had to lease the licence from the server. This could be done from the desktop client by menu --> open on server.

More informatiosn could you find here:

Open the QlikView Management Console (QMC);

in System tab --> Licenses -->  Client Access Licenses (CAL) --> Assigned CALs 

add the 5 users

If you want to change the user, remove and add a new one (sometimes you need to wait 24 hours (look at the help, top right))

To use QlikView desktop you can lease the license from the server using QlikView desktop (open in server) or the ie plugin

2) If I chose to lease license, for 5 license keys, how many users can I lease license to?

5 CAL, 5 users
