Quarantine Period For Named User And Document CALs In QlikView Has ChangedArticle Number: 000024359 | Last Modified: 2020/02/05
Qlik’s policy regarding how and when customers can re-allocate a Named User or a Document CAL are documented in Qlik’s License Metrics document held available on http://qlik.com/license-terms and are as follows:
Named and Document CALs, and the NPrinting Designer, are assigned to an identified user and may not be transferred to another user unless the transfer is due to a i) termination of employment, or ii) a transfer of the prior user to a new business unit or group resulting in no access to the Qlik Software. When a Named User or Document CAL is transferred, there is a 24- hour quarantine before the CAL can be used by another user.
While our policy on the conditions under which a reallocation may occur has not changed, we have,discovered some customers are using tools provided by 3rd parties to facilitate the reallocation users in a way that is in breach of Qlik license terms. As a result, in order to help ensure compliance with our published terms we have made the decision to align our quarantine periods across our software offerings and are now increasing the quarantine period for QlikView Named and Document CALs from 24 hours to 7 days.
The quarantine time for Named User and Document CALs will be set to 7 days by the following deliveries;
QlikView 11.20 SR16
QlikView 12.00 SR6
All versions going forward from QlikView 12.10 IR
Note: If a Document CAL is assigned to a QVW, but a user hasn't opened the QVW to claim the Document CAL, that Document CAL can be transferred to another document without incurring the quarantine period. Once the Document CAL has been claimed by a user, moving that Document CAL to another document will incur the quarantine period.
