I have the same sort of issue with QV11. We authenticate our users against our own service, so we don't have a formal directory configured with QlikView. In QV10, we just needed to type in the username for user cals and doc cals. Now, we can't do this, since these usernames do not appear in a configured directory.
Is there any way around this, so that we can manually enter usernames again?
Yes, i definitely call that a bug.
I have made a ticket but Qliktech doesn't seem to find this too annoying.
One way to do that now is to use the Qlikview Power Tools you will find here : http://community.qlik.com/message/215866#215866
There is a program to manage CALs through command line.
It's more complicated than the Qlikview GUI but you can use it in a batch.
It works but i'm still saying Qliktech has done something wrong with this new release ..
Just got a response from QV after logging a ticket myself, too. Sounds like this is getting fixed for the next release.
