QlikView: Client Access Licenses

QlikView: Client Access Licenses
To connect to a QlikView Server (QVS), each client needs a Client Access License (CAL). The CALs are tied to the server serial number.

CAL Types:
1. Named User CAL
A Named User CAL is assigned to a unique and identified user who may access as
many QlikView documents as may reside on the server or server cluster to which
the Named User CAL is assigned. A Named User CAL may be transferred to
another user pursuant to the software licensing agreement, in which case there is
a 24-hour quarantine before the Named User CAL can be transferred to another
user. There is no time limit for how long a user assigned a Named User CAL can
access a QlikView document.

2. Document CAL
A Document CAL is assigned to a unique and identified user who may access only the one
QlikView document to which the Document CAL is assigned. Multiple
Document CALs can be assigned to a particular user. For example, if a user
connects to two QlikView documents, the user will have been assigned two
Document CALs. A Document CAL may be transferred to another user pursuant
to the software licensing agreement, in which case there is a 24-hour quarantine
before the Document CAL can be transferred to another user. There is no time
limit for how long a user assigned a Document CAL can access the QlikView
document to which the CAL is assigned.


3. Session CAL
A Session CAL allows any user, identified or anonymous/unidentified, on one
QlikView client to access as many QlikView documents as may reside on the
server or server cluster to which the Session CAL is assigned for a minimum
period of 15 minutes. For Session CALs, the QlikView client refers to each
unique instance of the QlikView client (for example, the AJAX client, QlikView
Desktop, or the Internet Explorer plugin) on the user’s machine. The minimum
session time for a Session CAL is 15 minutes, which means that sessions that
end in less than 15 minutes will still consume the session until the 15 minute
mark is passed; those which terminate after 15 minutes will consume their actual
session length.

4. Usage CAL
A Usage CAL allows any user, identified or anonymous/unidentified, to access
only one QlikView document, residing on the server or server cluster to which
the Usage CAL is assigned, from one client (for example, the AJAX client,
QlikView Desktop, or the Internet Explorer plugin) for a time period of 60
minutes per 28-day period. If a user exceeds the 60 minute time limitation, the
user will have consumed two Usage CALs without any warning being given to
the user. Every 28 days, the Usage CAL is refreshed and the user may once again
view a new QlikView document for 60 minutes, using the same Usage CAL.
Usage CALs are continuously recharged (at a pace corresponding to 1/28 of the
total number of Usage CALs assigned to the QlikView Server per day)

License Lease
A QlikView client that does not have a registered license is allowed to connect to QlikView Server and
“borrow” a license, so that the user can work offline for a period of 30 days. The QlikView client must
then make an authenticated log on (not anonymous) and obtain a Named User CAL. Each time QlikView
is started, QlikView tries to contact QlikView Server and renew the license lease. If the client cannot
reach the server after 30 days, the license lease expires.
A license lease can only be used with QlikView Desktop and the Internet Explorer plugin. This means a
license lease cannot be obtained when using an AJAX client.



In QlikView 10 open QEMC and follow this tree : tab System -> Licences -> then click on QlikView Server -> Client Access Licences -> Assigned Cals -> then type username and click on "Assign Cal" button and then Say Apply at the bottom. Now he/she can access the application from access point .
