NPrinting is now licensed as any other QlikView product, with a Serial number and a control number of 5 digits. You may have a legacy version or a NPrinting version before the acquistion?
If you don't know which correspond to which product, I recommend you to contact Qoncierge at http://www.qlik.com/us/services/support/qoncierge who will help you with it.
In the current version, the QlikView NPrinting license is not multinode, ie: if you want to have two nodes running NPrinting Server you will need two licenses.
Similarly, with NPrinting Designer, you will need as many QlikView NPrinting Designer licenses as number of seats where the software will run (it could be just one).
Would I be correct then in saying then:
Server A: nPrinting (server and designer license activated)
Server B: Application/Production.
Users access the applications on Access Point and have associated CALs.
Is a developer license required per user now when accessing through Access Point or just for Server B?
David, irrespective the architecture of the software:
- Users who consume NPrinting reports, no matter the format, do not need any license.
- Developers who create reports with NPrinting do need a Designer license
If your user goes to open a QVW then click a button to execute a report, the associated QlikView CAL is enough, regardless they use Ajax client, IE Plugin or direct URL.
Since your users are going to the Access Point, therefore not designing reports, they are OK as they are, and there is no need for additional licenses.
Right now, I have my application on Server B (production server - has developer installed but not activated license).
I (the developer), am testing my application and when I click on the button to launch nPrinting on the production server, it calls the external requests to launch nPrinting on the nPrinting server (Server A - fully licensed).
However when I press the button on Server B, it pops up with the command prompt to show whats happening and then up comes the Designer license dialog box. It is here I need to add my license.
I have a license but obviously, because I have it already activated on Server A (nPrinting Server), I will not be able to activate Designer on Server B ?
I'm may be missing something here.
If you have one Designer license which has not been activated in Server B, then why prompts? Both licenses are totally independent (it is not like in QlikView where the QlikView Server has licenses you then assign to every user).
If you entered the license in Server B then you either uninstall Designer disabling the license in Server B and then use it in your computer or ask Qoncierge for the best way of moving licenses you are not using. Note that NPrinting licenses do not lease, so you need to have a valid local license in each installation of the software.
From reading the above article, I says I need to install Designer on the Production server.
I am uninstalling Designer from my production server now and going to run it again.
It is still installed and activated on my nPrinting server.
Will let you know the outcome
I'm a qlikview developer and i do have licence and control number for my desktop version, now I want to download and use nPrinting for my learning purpose.
Can i use the same Control number and Licence key to activate the nPrinting designer, if yes can i have the link to download it(nPrint Designer), because i'm not able to see any genuine link to download the same.
