IMPORTANT Consideration(s)

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.
