Restricting who can lease a license for Client Tool

Is it possible to restrict who can lease a named CAL license via the client tool based on AD membership?

Here is why.  We have dynamic Named CAL assignment turned on.  I understand the client tool can easily be found and downloaded for free on the internet.  Given the QVS server name, a user with a small amount technical savvy can lease a CAL license without our permission as Administrators.  In a company with 10K+ employees, we want users to go through the planning and approval process before they start developing dashboards.

Thanks,

You cannot restrict which users can/cannot lease a named CAL with Dynamic CAL assignment enabled.

You must disable the Dynamic CAL assignment option and then assign named CAL to specific users in the Assigned CALS tab.
