Lease license

Hello

I got a named Cal given for user X=Corp\X

there is another user Y=Corp\Y

the user Y wants to lease license on his local QlikView Client

Can user Y use Open in Server feature and lease license by logging using user X credentials?

I tried it but client is not leasing license

Please advise

Re: Lease license

Depends. If you use Active Directory for authentication then user Y won't be able to login on as user X.

Also a user can lease a license from only two different workstations in a 24 hour period:

QlikView License Leasing Technical Brief Paper.pdf

Multiple License Leases

A single user can lease up to two licenses to two separate workstations within a 24 hour period. An attempt to lease a third license in a 24 hour period will be revoked if the same User ID is used. Additionally, the existing license lease of the third machine, should there be one previously existing, will be revoked in the case where the same User ID has leased a license from two other workstations in the previous 24 hour period. The third machine will however be able to lease a license after 24 hours have passed.

Re: Lease license

This seems to work for me. I use this method when I need to do the odd bit of development of a document physically on the server - I have installed QV desktop on the server and can lease a licence using my network login credentials. In fact I've just checked and it is still leasing one from when I used it earlier this week.

Re: Lease license

the question in brief is:

can I lease license from one named cal to many QV clients?

Re: Lease license

Of course not. A named cal is tied to a named user. You cannot use 1 named cal for many (unnamed) users. Better get in touch with a Qlikview Sales representative to determine the optimal license mix for you.

Re: Lease license

In short, No.  The CAL is assigned to a single user (typically an AD account).  That can be leased to the same user on two or three bits of hardware, but not to different user accounts.

Re: Lease license

Ok I got a named Cal for user X I'm logging in to my PC and my username is Y if I open-in-server using the credentials of user X can I lease license to my client?

Not applicable

Re: Lease license

That is correct, the lease time is 30 days and can be renewed by simply connect to the server again.

More info can also been found in the white paper ex. http://community.qlik.com/docs/DOC-2993

Re: Lease license

Yes you can, HOWEVER it will close the connection for the other user if they are also using the CAL, even on another document, so you cannot "share" a Named CAL with two people at the same time.

Re: Lease license

That's right. What I meant to highlight was the "alternative" lease remains active even though my "regular" lease has been used in the meantime.
