    *** All about CALs (Detailed information on four CAL types) ***

    Deepak Vadithala

      Dear All,

       

      Please can someone explain in detail about the difference between the four Client Access Lincenses (CALs)?

       

      1. Named CAL

      2. Session CAL

      3. Document CAL

      4. Usage CAL

       

      I have the basic understanding but I am looking forward for detailed explanation.

       

      Many thanks in advance.

       

      Cheers - DV

          This is what the Server Manual says about it

           

          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 on one computer to access QlikView documents, that is any number of concurrent sessions from one user on one machine at a time is allowed. 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
