Analyzer capacity license is a consumption-based licensing model introduced in Qlik Sense February 2019 which allows a pool of user to consume apps by unit of time (unit is 6 minutes) without the need of having a license assigned to a user (named user).

When a user from the pool logs in the hub and opens an app he/she will consume 1 unit after 6 minutes and extra unit will be consumed thereafter in increments. For example: If the user stays in for 15 minutes, 3 units will be consumed (18 minutes) as a unit started is marked as a unit consumed.
No consumption is registered if the user is logged in but idle (not opening apps, sheets,...).

When all analyzer units have been consumed, no users from the pool can access Qlik Sense, until the monthly reset occurs. To avoid lockout, coverage can be added to the subscription. Coverage is a function that allows to buy minutes packages automatically when consumed, it can either be unlimited or with a defined ceiling. For more information see Page 2 under License Metrics Qlik Sense and Qlik Analytics Platform.

Here is an example of license with 1000 minutes of Analyzer Capacity: More information under Analyzer Capacity License

Here is an example in Qlik Sense Enterprise on Cloud Services (QSEoCS): Some documentation is available under "Analyzer capacity (minutes)" in License / User Allocation

Important:
An access to the Internet is required to use this type of license.
You must have a Signed License Key (SLK) to replace the serial number (old license). More information under Licensing Qlik Sense for Analyzer Capacity

UPDATE: I've found the endpoint however the data isn't broken down any further - will keep investigating as we NEED the detail!

Ive been informed (via LinkedIn) that Qlik are aware of the need for this info (user and App usage details) and will make it available at some future point in time. But I wasn't given an likely time-frame.

Hi Robert Hutchings, the App Analyzer itself doesn’t show usage, only metadata about the applications gathered post-reload (data stored in the app’s xml header). This application is largely a direct port from the Windows App Metadata Analyzer, and as such is scoped the same. In the future, there are plans to surface usage data in the console and additional apps are under consideration that will analyze usage data. That data is extraordinarily important, and our team is actively working with PM to outline and define what metrics and capabilities need to exist to measure usage, track adoption, audit, etc. More to come.

Can this be escalated as a priority by Qlik please. Having user/usage monitoring is a must for any consumption service to ensure ability to adopt the correct licensing model.

Hi @parkera this is an area which I'm responsible for in the Product Management team. As Daniel Pilla said, there are already plans for a lot more to come. And at the top of that list we do have user/usage monitoring. In other words, it has already a high priority which we are going to execute on as soon as possible. I'll make sure that I update you and others within this thread about the next steps as soon as we go there. This is truly an important area for us from an investment perspective. Let me know if you have nay other questions. Best regards, Thomas
