  3. If not immediately prompted for a license, go to License Management

Hello Support

How do we reuse the signed license key ? Is it possible to reuse the key once we decide to uninstall the environment where the SLK is used and install fresh Qlik sense in a different region  or Data center ?

Thanks

Hello @tomissac 

That is possible, yes. Note that the Signed License key will sync user allocation. So prior to moving servers and/or decommissioning the old server, we'd recommend you delete the current user assignments, as they will otherwise be carried over.

All the best,

Dear @Sonja_Bauernfeind  & @Andre_Sostizzo ,

 

I would like to ask a question regarding access to  https://license.qlikcloud.com. In a multi-node deployment, do all servers (master & rim nodes) need to access the aforementioned URL? As far as I know, Qlik Repository Service runs on every node and handles licensing among other activities .

 

Many thanks for your time & answers.

 

BR,

Hello @ifytra,

All nodes require access, not only the central node (Qlik Sense). 

I'll update the articles on this topic to clarify this. Thank you for asking!

 

All the best,
Sonja
