Upgrade notes

Upgrading when using certificates for authorization


If a standard Upgrade is done, new certificates will be created using the AES 256

GCM mode as part of the upgrade.


Instructions for upgrading QlikView with new certificates mode (GCM) – Before implementing this, TLS 1.2 has to be enabled for QVS to work normally.

Perform the upgrade on all machines in the cluster.

After completion, the installer will ask you to restart the machine/s.

After restart and services are running, stop all the services and open "C:\Program Files\QlikView\Management Service\QVManagementService.exe.config" and apply the following config:

 <add key="InstallingNewCertificatesAndCryptoKey" value="true"></add>

If Services are clustered, all the cluster nodes also need the new certificate.

Add into resp config files for each (one on each node):

<add key="InstallingNewCertificatesAndCryptoKey" value="true"></add>


InstallingNewCertificatesAndCryptoKey=1 if QVS.

Start the QMS first and then rest of all services

In the QMC, go to the service’s System/setup, for example if QDS select the node and distribute the new certificates to QDS machine with Apply in setup and follow the popup instructions. Do this for one service om each node to distribute new certs mode. Stop QMS again and all services. Make above configuration false in all config/settings files

"<add key="InstallingNewCertificatesAndCryptoKey" value="false"></add>".

Start all services. All machines in the cluster shall now have the new certs mode.

If you for some reason need to downgrade to the previous version again, follow this

Support Article to re-generate certificates using the old encryption algorithm.


System requirements notes

The system requirements for this release can be found under “System requirements” on the Qlik help web site.
