QlikView License

Is there a way to get the active licenses in QlikView programatically? I need to find out who is using the dashboards, when, how long, etc. I have all the data I need except the full user name. I want to know if there is a way for my dashboard to get the info from the QV server. Thanks for you help.

Extract the LanID and DisplayName from your Active Directory and load that table into the app. You can find samples of loading from Active Directory in the Qlikview Cookbook.

QlikView License

If you want to know who has a license assigned then the only way is through QMS API.

If you'd like to know who is using what dashboard you can see that in the sessions log.

I agree with Daniel.

I will just add that if you want to read the logs, you can just config the QV Server Performance App that you can find here at the community:

Re: QlikView License

Erich and Daniel – Thank you for your response. I’m enhancing the QV Server Performance dashboard to show the user’s full name instead of the LanID. How can I do that?

Re: QlikView License

Hi,

I would include a table (it can be an excel file), with the fields LanID and FullUserName

Hope it helps,

Erich

You can query the active directory, not the easiest task.
