Get a Qlik Account, set up your tenant, and invite users.

A Qlik Account is sometimes referred to as a Qlik ID or ULC. Once registered for a Qlik Account, you automatically have access to multiple Qlik sites, including Qlik Community and Qlik Continuous Classroom (QCC). Customers and partners can access the Support Portal and the full Downloads page. Partners can access the Partner Portal.

A Qlik Account is not just a user registration at Qlik, it is also includes an association with the Qlik IdP, the default identity provider for a SaaS tenant. A tenant is a unit in Qlik’s software subscription service, a container for items such as users, apps, and spaces.

Register for a Qlik Account and set up your tenant

To set up a tenant, you must log in with your Qlik Account and follow the steps in the auto-generated welcome email.

Information noteYou can only create one tenant per email address.

Invite users

You add users to the tenant by entering their email addresses into the Management Console: https://<tenantname>.<region>.qlikcloud.com/console

From the hub, you can also reach the Management Console via the Launcher menu .

In the Users section, click the Invite button and add the email addresses of users you want to add. An invitation is sent to the users. Qlik Sense Business supports 50 users.

‘Add users’ email addresses to the input box and click ‘Send invitation’.

You can also invite users from your profile:
Open the ‘Invite users’ dialog from the profile menu.

An invite is only valid for a limited period. When an invite has been sent, the name column on the Users page shows Invited user and the status is Pending. Users accept the invite by registering for a Qlik Account. When the invite is accepted, the real user name is displayed with the status Active.

Information noteYou can resend an invite after it has expired. You can delete both pending and expired invites.

When users accept the invite, they are automatically assigned access. They can start creating, editing, and publishing sheets and apps, and make full use of the available features in the hub.

As a tenant admin you can assign the tenant admin and developer roles to other users. All tenant admins have the same permissions.

Information noteThe developer role is needed if you want to generate or delete API keys, which are used for authentication.

The following videos introduce you to common tenant admin tasks.

Many of the actions related to apps and spaces are self-service, available to users from the hub. This means that those administration tasks can be performed by users themselves and do not require admin help. Permissions determine what actions a user can perform.
