Hi and Welcome to Qlik Fix
This video will demonstrate how to switch from Client Access Licenses (CALs) to the new Professional and Analyzer Access licensing

When applying a Signed License Key to QlikView, the licensing model is converted to Professional and Analyzer access. In this example we see the displayed allocations of User CALS, and Document CALs under the User Document's settings.
The signed license key is applied by pasting it under System Licenses configuration in the "Signed Key" field. Then click on the Apply License button. Please note that once a Signed license key is applied the current QlikView Deployment cannot be reverted to the legacy Client Access License model.
Click OK to restart the QlikView Server service.
When the existing QlikView deployment already has legacy CAL assignemnts, after applying the new Signed Key the license allocations need to be manually re-configured according to the Analytics Modernization Program licensing conversion ratio that was opted for.
The primary conversion being the following:
Under the License Definition we can see the allotments provided by this License key.
When a new signed license key is applied the file AllocatedCALinfo.txt is automatically generated under the location seen here. It contains a semicolon-separated list of users that had Named User CAL and Document CAL assigments before switching to the Professional and Analyzer access licensing model.
Copy the list of "Named Cals", and paste it under the "Manual Input of Users Names" field when performing the Professional Access assignement. Click OK, then click Apply.
Next copy the list of "Named Document Cals", and paste it under the "Manual Input of User Names" when performing the Analyzer Access assignment. Click OK, then click Apply.
Now you can review your assignments under the General tab.
Thanks for watching!
