Re: What is meant by Leasing the License ?

It is one of two ways of leasing a desktop installation of qlikview.

If you do not have a 'local client license'  ,  you can license the desktop by leasing a named user CAL from a server installation that includes Named User Cals.

The 'allow license lease' option must be enabled on the server. When this is turned on a developer can then connect to the server and lease a license.  One way is to have them open a server app using the 'open in server' menu option from the desktop. In this scenario, you'll have to already allocate that user a Named User cal, or turn on 'allow dynamic call assignment'.  The act of opening a server app from the desktop auto licenses the desktop with a 30 day lease.   The lease must be renewed by the developer after 30 days.  The server should recognize the developer as 1 user even if the access apps through the web / access point or through the desktop so no need to 2x license developers.

HI,

You will have to license your personal edition. You cannot open other QVW's that were created by another user with personal edition.

When to use License Lease

Use License Lease if you don't have a QlikView Desktop license or if running out of QlikView Desktop licenses

Prerequisites when leasing a license

The following prerequisites must be met to lease a license from QlikView Server

Small Business Edition or Enterprise Edition of QlikView Server

Named user CALs

CAL assigned to user

Settings in QlikView Management Console

The following settings are required in QlikView Management Console (QMC) on the QlikView Server

System > License > QlikView Server > Client Access Licenses (CALs) > General > Check 'Allow license lease'

System > License > QlikView Server > Client Access Licenses (CALs) > Assigned CALs > Select the specific user > Assign CAL

Enter the address to QlikView Server using the qvp protocol (example: qvp://myserver )

Hit Connect

Open a document.  The license is now leased from the Qlikview Server
