    How to define Qlikview license expiration


      Hi everyone,

       

      How would I go about defining a policy to automatically expire licenses that have been used for X period of days?

       

      We are finding that stale licenses are never recovered and we would ideally like to automate the process.

       

      I am relatively new to involvement with this product so any help would be greatly appreciated.

          Hello Andrew,

           

          To my knowledge, this is not part of the features available on the QlikView server, nor through the API.

           

          You can imagine that if such a feature were available, SaaS could easily be implemented on QlikView Servers, licenses could constanlty be reused, automatically diminishing the number of licenses needed for an enterprise's user community. From a customer's wallet point of vue, this would be great. But, from an editor's revenue point of vue, not as much!

           

          Regards,

           

          Philippe

            Indeed this is not a standard feature of QlikView. However, it should be fairly easy to do if you know your way around building your own system scripts and utilities. There is a QV Power Tool for managing users and licenses. It can both grant and remove licenses.

             

            See also this discussion Dynamic Doc Cal Deallocation for further suggestions.

             

            Good luck,
