Session CAL management

Is it possible to manage Session CALs based on certain users? We have a certain number of named CALs, for our regular users, and 1 Session CAL that I would like to be able to assign to a certain set of users that don't access the tool as often. Is this possible? If so, does anyone have any documentation on how to do this?

thanks,

rob

If a user does not have Named CAL, they will use a Session CAL. So do the following:

1. Uncheck "Allow Dynamic CAL Additions" on the Server Control Panel, Cal Info tab.
2. Add the users you want as Named CAL.
3. Any user not in the Named CAL list will use the session CAL when they open a document.

Is this what you were looking for?

Hi,

Is there a limitation on the number of concurrent users using Session CAL? Thanks.

I don't think there is any limit to the number of session CALs that can be utilized. One session CAL = any one user at a time. But you must have a CAL for each concurrent session.

Dear Rob,

I have a query please help me with few points, actually I am having Named CAL(20), as well as Session CAL(6).

Right now the scenario is  any user who don't have Named cal can have access with using any Session Cal, what I found any User who is using Session Cal have full access to all application.


  1. Is this like Session Cal is Power Users like Named Users?
  2. How in future if needed I can apply Security (Like Document Cal) particular  Specific Users using Session Cal to access specific application? 
  3. what if I need to restrict Users; as if right now any one in Domain can hit and access Qlikview Access Point.

I have achieved Point 2 by providing NTLM and windows Security to Folders but is there any options available in QEMC?

Ans.

1. Yes it is like that of Named Cal Read official statement.

"

A Session CAL allows any user, identified or anonymous/unidentified, on one

QlikView client to access as many QlikView documents as may reside on the

server or server cluster to which the Session CAL is assigned for a minimum

period of 15 minutes. "

3.  Question no 3 not much clear its look simillar to point 2?

Thanks Anant got your point Question 3 was regarding here I have developed several application HR/Finance...etc and now every user have access to all the Qlikview  documents mounted on Access point which should not be a case eg: in my company any Employee can go to access point and have access to HR data which should be restricted.

same like Named and Document cal in which we have a list and other User can't access any application if not listed.

I hope you got my Point, so do we have a solution on this ? besides windows Security

ok can you try something basic if you can

you already know how to lock a application (qvw) by password protect it, so lik for HR Dashboard

make it password protected and share it with owner or right person Like HR head or howsoever,

and when other user/anonymous  will access the access point they be able to see all Thumb nails

but when any other user will click HR he will be ask for password and there by he cant access it.

can this be done? i also want to know your suggestions about this
