      • QlikView license Issue

        Hi,

        The following extract from QV would answer your question.

         

        There are four different types of CALs available:
        • Named CAL (an identified user on a server) - Access is based on user identity
        and valid for all documents on the server, that is any number of concurrent
        sessions from one user on one machine at a time is allowed.
        • Document CAL (an identified user within a given document) - Just as
        above, the access is based on user identity, but the CAL is valid only for one
        document. If the same user connects to two documents using this licensing
        method, he will hence consume two Document CALs.
        • Session CAL - Each Session CAL allows one user to access one QlikView
        document, that is to have one session at a time. Anonymous users are
        allowed, no identification of the client user is necessary.
        • Usage CAL - Each Usage CAL gives the right to initiate one session (single
        document) per running 28-day period. The session may last a maximum of
        one hour. Any activity after the first hour has expired will count as a new
        session (albeit without visible interruption). No identification of the client
        user is necessary.

         

        Thanks,

        Syed

              HI,

              Thank you for your reply.

              As you said, there are four different types of CALs available.

              • Named CAL (an identified user on a server

              • Document CAL (an identified user within a given document

              • Session CAL

              • Usage CAL

              Which license is better to reduce cost of license?

              Looking forword for your help.

                  Type of License to choose depends on various factors. However, with experience, i could say the best would be Document CAL.

                  If the Data Model is created properly, you would have the flexibility to consolidate various reports in just one QV document. Hence, reducing the number of Licenses per user.
