Named CAL license lease doubt.

Hi!

Will a license lease depend upon the System the user is logging when the server identifies the user by User ID?

Noted that the User is assigned a Named CAL.

Thanks and Regards,

Named CAL license lease doubt.

Hello Karthik,

All assignments in SBE are done in the form DOMAIN\Username. If the user is logged as DOMAIN\Username, or even if in the Start Page of the Desktop application, Open in Server, the user is specified in this form (although it's different to the logged user, but valid in the system and corresponding to a license assigned in the System). That will allow the server to lease, unless the license is already in use (opened in a different computer, for example).

Hope that helps.

Thanks Miguel for the quick reply.

The point you mentioned : ' unless the license is already in use' indicates that, even with a Named CAL, the user identification is bound to the System that he is using, right? If he gets a new system, is it required to de-allocate the earlier leased license and assign again?

Also, can you help in interpreting the table : License Lease History?

Hi,

That means that if you are using Desktop in your computer, connected to the server, with your user using a leased license, and without closing the Desktop you go to another computer, and open the same or another document as your same user, you will not be allowed, since the allocation is assigned and the license in use.

Just close the Desktop application in the first computer and you can lease in the second.

Only in the case your user is not going to use any longer QlikView, then you don't need to remove and reassign the license.

In regards to the History table, as I'm seeing it in the QlikView Enterprise Management Console, System, Licenses, Server, History, that shows the logged user with assigned licensed, the machine from which the user is accessing, and the time, UTC when he last used the license (logged to the QlikView Server).

Hope that helps.

Yes that shall help.. thanks a lot!

Now, is there any reported problem in QlikView Server 9.0.7646.9 (SR 6) issuing a license lease to QlikView 9.00.7502.8 (SR 5)?

Thanks and Regards,

Hello Karthik,

There's not, as far as I know (we are leasing from Server 10 to Desktop 9 and viceversa). Anyway, update all clients and server to the latest possile version. Check the Release Notes in any case to have a comprehensive list of bugs corrected in each version and revision. Ask for this document if you don't have access to it to your QlikTech partner or sales rep.

Hope that helps.

Can we download files opened via license leased from server? I know opening it is possible. But can we save it or download it for offline use?

Hello,

If the server is configured to allow that document to be downloaded (Enterprise Management Console, Documents, User Documents, click on the document, Server Settings, Accespoint Access Method, Download checkbox) then you can download it rather than open it, and then open it should the Desktop application has been leased a license. A User CAL. Document CALs cannot be leased.

Hope that helps

Thanks for the swift reply. What we want is to open the file in the client and then save it but it seems that the save button is inactive. That means the file cannot be saved right?

That's correct. Opening a document with client (either Desktop, Open in server, or AJAX or IE Plugin) doesn't allow you to save (or edit script, macros, etc). But downloading doesn't mean you have full access, unless the document had been developed that way, since there are some ways to restrict some functionality to users (say, section access).

Regards.
