Leasing a license using AD Groups

I have a number of users that need to lease licenses and I would like to use an AD group to control these named user CALs.  When I put users in this group they can get a license for Access point but cannot lease a license to the desktop version of QlikView.  I have tried "Allow dynamic CAL assignment" but nothing allows me to lease the license.

I am in a multiple domain environment and cannot get access to specific user names but I am allowed to see an AD group.

Any help on this would be appreciated.

Thanks

Re: Leasing a license using AD Groups

Hi,

To get the license for the desktop version you need to open any application from server by using "Open in server".

Then it'll automatically lease a license hence you already activate Allow dynamic CAL assignment.

Re: Leasing a license using AD Groups

Hi,

Lease license are User CALs and are assigned to a user. You can't use groups to do this.

Bill - Thanks for your response.  Can you tell me why QlikView allows you to add a group to the named user CALs then?

Thanks

Hi,

I don't know why other than it is an object. However, it doesn't work if you select a group.
