If a user has a named cal can they use QV developer w/ no addl cost?

Is there an additional license fee if a user has a named cal and they "open in server" using QlikView Developer?  Users developing in the browser is a nightmare - extremely limiting.

Thanks,

Dave

No.

Because in that case you will be using QlikView Desktop as an AccessPoint client, just like a regular browser. In addition to that and using a Named CAL, a user can upgrade QV Desktop to a full icensed development tool by leasing the Named CAL. There are no extra fees involved in either of these actions.

And indeed, developing server objects in the AccessPoint using a browser is a bit less developer-friendly than in QV Desktop.

Note that in QlikView Desktop and using Open in Server... a user can still only create server objects for his/her account. They can be shared later on, but they cannot be stored in the underlying QlikView document. For that the user will need direct access to the QVW file. Just like a regular developer.

Also note that Document CALs cannot be leased, but since a user with a Document CAL can also use Open in Server... he/she can still create Server objects. Only not edit a document QVW.

I was just told yes by a Qlik partner.  I do not need to upgrade Desktop to a full developer tool, just allow named users  to "open in server", and be able to add their own objects with the full power of devleoper but NOT change the original document on the server
