CAL's are of 2 types
Named CAL : Can open all the documents and also development
Document CAL : This is authorized to view only doc that is assigned.
For Assigning a Named Cal got to
Qlikview management Console > Licenses > Client Access Licenses (CAL)
here you can assign a CAL by giving a current "USER" name of person , Or its "MACHINE" name as identifier.
Here is information on Usage Cals.
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.
The Usage CAL is designed to accomodate "overflow" usage during peak times. It is not tied to a User or Machine. A Usage CAL allows 1 user to have access to 1 QlikView Document (session) for 1 hour over a 28 day period. Once this limit has been met, the Usage CAL becomes inactive and is not reset until the 28 day period has passed.
- While it is recommended to try and identify the different user types and match them to the appropriate license type, there are times when additional users will be accessing QlikView. This usually happens during peak times such as Month-End closing, Year-End Processing or Promotional Campaigns- all activities that will boost the usage of QlikView. For these times, Usage CALs can be utilized to accomodate these "overflow" users.
- Usage CALs have a time limit and should not be used to accommodate individual or groups of users. A Usage CAL will allow a user to access 1 QlikView document for up to 1 hour within a 28 day period. While Usage CALs are a very cost-effective way to handle overflow usage, it is important to understand their limitations and plan your licensing strategy accordingly.
Usage CAL is designed to use for overflow usage during peak times. A Usage CAL allows 1 user to have access to 1 QV Document(session) for 1 hour over a 28 day period. So ifa user use 1 Usage CAL for 1 hour, it becomes inactive and is not reset(recover) until the 28 day period has passed.
"n" Usage CAL
→ From the following day, n/28 numbers of Usage CAL will be recovered
・ ・ ・ ・
→ After 28 days, "n" numbers of CAL is recovered and available to use
Usage CAL count example
eg.1:Let's assume you have 1 Usage CAL. You used it and the counter starts.
→ After 1 day, counter becomes 1/28. After 2 days, counter becomes 2/28. After 5 days, counter becomes 5/28.........After 28 dyas, counter becomes 28/28. At this count(28 day period has passed), 1 CAL is recovered.
eg.2:Let's assume you have 5 Usage CAL. You used all and the counter starts.
→ After 1 day, counter becomes 5/28. After 2 days, counter becomes 10/28. After 6 days, counter becomes 30/28≒(Available 1 Usage CAL at this point)............After 28 days, counter becomes 140/28. At this point(28 day period has passed), 5 CAL is recovered.
So it is good to use when additional users will be accessing QlikView during peak times such as month/year-end closing or promotional campaigns.

The Usage CALs will be assigned automaticly when no other CAL is assigned to the user. The Server will follow following steps:
When different CAL types are combined on the same server and the “allow dynamic CAL
assignment” options are checked, the order of priority in the CAL assignment is done as follows:
1. If there is a dedicated Named User CAL for the connecting client, it is used.
2. If there is a dedicated Document CAL for the connecting client, it is used.
3. If a new Named User CAL can be assigned to the connecting client, it is used.
4. If a new Document CAL can be assigned to the connecting client, it is used.
5. If there is an available Session CAL, it is used.
6. If there is an available Usage CAL, it is used.
If dynamic CAL assignement is not activated for Named / Document CALs, the steps 3/4 will be skipped
