This article will guide you through the steps to license Qlik Sense February 2019 and later using the Signed License Key.
The Signed License Key is:
Replacing the 16 digits license key and control number.
JSON Web token.
Secure communication, https://
To apply a Signed License Key, a secure network connection is required to be established: A signed license key requires connectivity to license.qlikcloud.com. It can establish in any of the security scenarios below:
The Signed License Key will be delivered to you via email, in the same email that you normally receive the standard license key 16 digits and control number.
I. Please note that after changing to a license with a signed key, you cannot return to using the old LEF based license model. If you want to go back to the old LEF based license model a new installation will be required.
II. If the SLK is already in use in another Qlik Sense or QlikView environment including SaaS, and Analyzer allocations are in place for users that exist in the new environment, the users may be assigned a Professional license automatically regardless, leading to the user having both Professional and Analyzer allocations. This new Professional allocation will then synchronize to the pre-existing environments. If the user has no allocation in any existing environment(s), the user with an assign legacy Token will automatically be assigned a Professional license, which synchronizes to pre-existing environments.
1. Launch the QMC 2. Go to License Management
3. As a default, you will be prompted to apply the Signed License Key. Paste the code into the designated area.

5. If the license is successfully applied in the QMC, the Hyperlink (Use serial number and control number) to go back to license through the old model will disappear and on the left hand side will only say Signed license key.
Note: System must have access to the external network to authenticate the license with the Qlik Sense License database.
