QLIKVIEW LICENSE CLEANER

Hi all,


Qlikview Server has a number of licenses (AssignedCals), there may be a problem when these licenses come to the limit.

To avoid to click 200 times (delete foreach user, apply and then restore and applies again....) I create this simple program.

Launch the program (you need to be in the same network of Qlikview Server), enter the name of the QlikView Server and the number of the port (you can see these info in the address of the "QlikView Management Console"), once you have entered this information, the program connects to the Management Console and allows with few clicks to "clean" all licenses .

Work with latest Qlikview Server version (12.x).

[UPDATE 02-2017]

The latest version do all automatically (cancel and restore), and finally the program closes.

So once you open the program, just wait.

Bye,

emakio

Does this not contradict the license agreement?  See QlikView license metrics Section 3

Named and Document CALs, and the NPrinting Designer, are assigned to an identified user and may not be transferred to another user unless the transfer is due to a i) termination of employment, or ii) a transfer of the prior user to a new business unit or group resulting in no access to the Qlik Software. When a Named User or Document CAL is transferred, there is a 7 day quarantine before the CAL can be used by another user.

You should know that with the latest version of QlikView Server, there are 7 day of quarantine before you are able to re-assign the license (with older version was different), so doens't contradict the license agreement, simply cleans automatically what sould do a user with a thousand click.

When it asks for the server name and port do you input a QVS server (if so which port) or the QMS server.

we have a clustered environment so this is not obvious

Hi, the server name its the server where Qlikview is installed, if you launch the program directly from server you can write only "localhost", about the port, you can see that if you open Qlik Management Console and check the link (example : http://localhost:4780/qmc/default.htm ‌...4780 is the port)

Hi,

Great piece of software, thank you!

I have an issue on my site, where they don't always have a user name which is "Surname, Forename", they have just PC12345. This causes the script to fail as in the screenshot. Is there anything I can do to resolve this?
