Is it possible for a user with the QV user-specific license to use an app on the iPad?

Hi - a salesman is not our employee so he uses the user-specific QV license pn his notebook. How can he work with a qvw on his iPad. Is this at all possible?

Thank you

Re: Is it possible for a user with the QV user-specific license to use an app on the iPad?

Yes,

If a user has standalone licence he can access any number of documents in his desktop.

Where as he cannot access the same in IPAD.

If he lease license from server, then he can use the same license on IPAD to access.

If it answered, can you close this thread by selecting appropriate answer.

with an iPad you can see a Qlik doc published on a server and you need a license (CAL)

I read this as it is not possible to use QV apps on an iPad for users who are not set on the network and therefore do not have access to the AccessPoint. Correct?

We do not have Publisher and he has the user-specific type of the license.

AFAIK if you have an iPad the only way to see a Qlik doc is using a browser connected to a Qlik server (there is also an offline  mode, more on pdf attachment)

to connect to a Qlik server you need a license

the Publisher doesn't matter

Thanks Massimo. The user needs to connect to the Access Point and this is not an option as he is using the standalone license.

Hi,

To Access QlikView on IPAD requires same Licenses as that of to access QlikView in Local network.

If a user does not belong to your organization.

Then you can create a local user in server and give him access.

Re: Is it possible for a user with the QV user-specific license to use an app on the iPad?

as I don't understand what you mean for user-specific QV license or standalone license, I'll summarize license types

- desktop license: used on Windows, the user can create qlik doc and open Qlik doc (no limit on number of doc); the user can't open document in Access Point (server)

- server CAL license: the user can cannect to a Qlik server and open Qlik document on the Access Point using a browser (pc, iPad, smartphone)  or using Qlik desktop

Your user (for iPad) needs a server CAL license


If he already  has a CAL license on your server, add a local user as Ashfaq suggests, authorize, etc.....

Sorry. Yes, by standalone, I referred to the desktop license. He also doesn't/ will not

have a network account.

From all being said I understand he can't use QVapps on his iPad as he uses them on his notebook unless he has access to our local network. After all, that is the reason why he utilizes the "desktop/ standalone" type of licenses.

Thank you all
