Dear fellow Qlikies,
I have a questions related to Document CAL restrictions.
In the document Pricing& License Guide QV 11.pdf there is a section about this topic.
Have some of you more information about these restrictions? Especially with regards to the sentence"additional tables are unconnected and contain only few records or a single column." How many records is that? For example if I have some islands in the data model for translations tables. If I have several hundred items to translate in 4 languages (each language would be an additional column and each item would a line) would a document CAL work with the model?
Thank you for your inputs.
15.3 Document CAL Restrictions
The purpose of the Document CAL is to provide amechanism by which licensees can license the use of a single document. Toprevent the combination of many data models in a single document, there are restrictions in the documents that can be used with the Document CAL. However,the Named User CAL, the Session CAL, and the Usage CAL can be used to open any functional QlikView document. The Document CAL can only be used with documents that have a single contiguous data model and do not contain any chasm traps between tables.
Most common data models used in QlikView documents can be used for Document CALs. For instance, proper star schemas and snowflake schemas typically have the field with the highest cardinality in the fact tableand the keys in dimensional tables have a lower cardinality. For snowflake schemas, the cardinality decreases further when moving away from the fact table. Documents containing such models typically fulfill the above demands and are well-suited for Document CALs.
Documents with multiple logical islands are normally not allowed. Multiple logical islands are only allowed, if the additional tables are unconnected and contain only few records or a single column.
In addition, the document may not contain any loosely coupled tables.
Finally, the cardinality (that is, the number of distinct values) of the key fields must decrease when moving away from the fact table.
