Discussion Board for collaboration related to QlikView Deployment.
Had a Question.
Is it allowed for a company to give licenses to their clients in Qlikview.
Although the client has no Qlikview Access previously but a report is made for them by a company so the Admin give them a User or Doc cal.
Would this be allowed or is this considered a wrong thing to do within Qlikview?
Clients don't need to buy developer licenses in QV to just view dashboards. If they're viewing through QV server (AccessPoint), users just need CALs assigned to them.
Sorry not Developer Licenses. User Licenses
I have been informed if a company example
Samsung develop an app - they purchase user cals and doc cals
Their client eg Nokia say can we view your reports.
So Samsung set up logins to their access point and assign a user cal to Nokia so Nokia can view Samsung Qlikview Apps.
Is this allowed.
I was informed all licenses need to stay within a single company for internal use and the example i have given abouve requires additional licenses that cost more?
This is what i was told and needed to clarify please
The License which we are currently in use for Server:
- QlikView Enterprise Edition (EE) Server
- QlikView Publisher
And for user:
- Document CALs
- Named User CALs
Both, server and user licences are only for internal use. That means that is only allowed for employees of Company to use the licences.
For customer of Company there will need the following licences:
- QlikView Extranet Server (max 3 Documents per Module)
- Session CALs (min 5 per Extranet Server Module)
I believe that this in not generally allowed, if your client (as I understand, your customer) is not a part of your organization/company. To do this you would most likely need to use an Extranet server. For more information I would
check with your QlikTech contact.
Just a comment on the session CALs, on an Extranet server these are not priced the same as on an EE server.
Before discussing about licences and all. I think first we need to provide external partner access in the platform level.
Because the dashboards will be under a company network, and if external partners need to get access need to provide the same.
The clients could use a QlikView cloud platform like QlikView OnDemand.
This will solve several problems:
