"Assigned CALs" User Management

Good day,

Is there another way (third party tools, out-of-the-box qvw apps, etc) to manage users for Assigned CALs instead of using the QMC or QEMC, where on this, we could add, insert or delete assigned users via an intuitive interface?

Thanks in advance for a positive replies.

There is an api to manage assigned CAL's - check the server reference manual for more detaals. I'm not aware of anyone building anything like an alternative interface using it though - more for automation of cal allocation.

I am curious (and genuine interested) - How can we improve the management consoles to make this more intuitive?

Regards

Chris

"Assigned CALs" User Management

I am wondering if anyone was able to find the API to manage assigned CAL's that Chris is referring to? I looked through the Server Reference manual but was not able to find this.

The attached (compressed) file contains a JavaScript library and a sample web page that demonstrates how to manage CALs.

Markk, Thanks for the documents. One question though. We are using NTFS rather than DMS and I would still like to use all of the functionality that your documents provide. You mentioned in your Read Me that if we change the Global Method that it will allow us to support NTFS mode, is this for both Adding Users to Groups, and Launching a QVW File? I am sorry but i am not that familiar with how the code works but would like to use the functionality if possible under NTFS. Thanks for the help

I'm sorry, but I'm not the author of the example, it was given to me by our OEM business contact at QlikTech. I'm afraid I don't have any experience using it with NTFS mode.

Hi Chris

The API allows me to add and delete a named user CAL and I can hook this into a javascript inside QlikView. What I was surprised was that there is no API call to list all named CALs currently registered.

Ideally I would like to load all the named CALs registered with the server into QlikView to see who is using the system and who has a CAL but is not running any reports.

regards, Ian

Hi

You will manage around 2000 CAL licences and we are already facing to this problem to check CAL licences with only 150 users. We are interested in having the a script to have a status of all registered CAL licence....
