June is rapidly approaching and if you are using Qlik Sense Desktop, you have probably seen this alert:
Qlik Sense Desktop will no longer be free after June 30th 2020, because you can now get started faster and easier on any device in the cloud. Qlik Sense Desktop will continue to be supported as part of a Qlik Sense Enterprise deployment.
Starting June 30, 2020, free access to Qlik Sense Desktop will discontinue. Users will still be able to access their Qlik Sense Apps via their local file system (default path is C:\Users\username\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Apps) and copy the files to other editions of Qlik Sense. To continue working in Qlik Sense Desktop, users must authenticate against Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows. Please note: The authentication on Enterprise need to be done using professional license. The analyzer license won’t work.
R&D is also working on the ability to authenticate via Qlik Cloud Services which would also enable Qlik Sense Business users to use Qlik Sense Desktop but we do not have a date as to when this will be available. We will be sure to pass that information along once we hear from R&D.
For more information on what is happening, please see the original Community post as it has an updated FAQ.
