RootAdmin + Analyzer token = LESS access to QMC

I have encountered the behaviour in QS QMC where a RootAdmin with an Analyzer token has LESS access than just a RootAdmin.

Having an Analyzer token will remove permissions that a normal RootAdmin has such as publish or delete of apps, and other abilities. Qlik has an article about this 000063467, but this idea suggestion is to change that behaviour.


Professional or Analyzer are a licence to view content in the Hub, and have should have no effect on QMC permissions.
The QMC permissions are managed separately by the existing default Admin roles such as RootAdmin, and should be mutually exclusive from licences.

There can be situations where IT support need to manage the environment = RootAdmin
view the Qlik monitoring apps = Analyzer
But having both will prevent you from accessing your full permissions.

I agree with this suggestion. Administrators need to view the monitoring apps, which would be a waste of a Professional license if the administrator is not otherwise a developer. For small enterprises, there may not be enough Pro licenses to give one to an admin. Please implement this change.


Hi @peter_turner thank you very much for sharing this idea with us. We are sorry that it took us longer than it should to get back to you but we are investigating the possibilities in that area and how we can make the QMC disconnected from any permissions a user receives via the license type. As a more general note, you will see more changes coming as well in our Qlik Sense SaaS platform where the license type doesn't matter anymore. It's all about permissions then.

Thanks again and best regards,
