Core based licenses in Qlik Sense

Core-based and capacity-based licensing is a change from traditional licensing. Rather than limiting the number of users who can access the Qlik Sense site by a limit on tokens, core-based licensing restricts user access by limiting the number of CPU cores which can be used by the Engine to deliver end-user content.

With a core-based license, there is no functional reason to use the License Monitor app since the users will not use tokens. Instead, consumption of apps can be gauged by reviewing the Session Overview and Session Details sheets on the Operations Monitor.


  • Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows with Core-based license


After applying the license, the administrator should review the Engine configuration to ensure that sufficient capacity has been assigned to the Engine(s) in the Qlik Sense site.

In this example, 256 cores are allocated to the license but the Central only has 8 available cores:


After adjusting the Cores to allocate to 8, we then have 248 cores which can be allocated across RIM nodes, if applicable.
