Issue with Document CALs and Named CALs

Hi all,

        We have strange issue, we are on version QV Server 11 and we have about 20 Named cals and 100 Doc cals

we used 15 used Named CALs  and 90 Document Cals  for a single qvw

and for some reason we found that 5 unused Named Cals are  being used by some users who assigned with document cals.

how this is possible ?

Is there any leak in license types that might have happened ? or are there any option that we might have checked which was causing this above phenomenon.

have anybody noticed this your environments and any suggestion would help

Thanks

Sri

Re: Issue with Document CALs and Named CALs

Named cals are user specific. So the admin must have assigned these users a named cal. So they are not unused. if you go in Setup --> Licences --> QVserver --> Assigned cals you should be able to verify that.

So it is not uncommon that they used both, if the used two different ways to open an application : IE plugin and Ajax for example.

Re: Issue with Document CALs and Named CALs

Thanks for your reply .. In this case i'm the Admin and i'm sure that I have not assigned those users Named Cals and

i'm in a impression that we have 5 Named cals unused but we recently found that all the named cals were used and


i'm just figuring out how this may have happened,I'm assuming that some user from Document Cals might have


occupied Named Cals . Is it actually possible ?

no

Re: Issue with Document CALs and Named CALs

Has "Allow dynamic CAL assignment" been enabled in your QVS? See QMC->System->Licenses->QlikView Server->Client Access Licenses (CALs)->General, and the corresponding tab for Document CALs attached to your document.

BTW which version of QVS are you running (please be specific, there are quirte a few different releases of QV 11.xx)?

Yes Dynamic Cal allocation Turned on

And version is QV 11.0 SR1

Even I felt that may not be case but I'm trying to investigate how this might have happened.

If you tick the Allow dynamic CAL assignment here, that would explain your problem,

Re: Issue with Document CALs and Named CALs

Hi,

This is very old version of Qlik.

I suggest to go for upgrade to latest version.
