Open Examples

In the installation directory “C:\Users\<YourUser>\AppData\Roaming\AnalyticsGate” you will find some templates that you can open and test in Excel.

Add a Security Rule

In order for AnalyticsGate to have access to your licence, you must create a security rule. We match the AnalyticsGate license with your Qlick Sense serial number. This rule allows us to read this serial number to do the matching.

Setting Value
Name AG_License
Resource filter License_*
Conditions !user.IsAnonymous()
Context Both in hub and QMC


Add License to Content Libraries

Upload the AnalyticsGate license file “license.txt” to your Qlik Sense Server and create a new content library “analyticsgate”

This content library will hold the file “license.txt” on your Qlik Sense server.

Go to >> Content libraries


Add a Security Rule for the “AnalyticsGate License”

You should create a security rule to read the license.


Upload your file “license.txt” to the content library “analyticsgate”

To get a quicker overview of your licence information, you can install the Qlik extension AG Web Management at the following link.

Allocate the User

If you have installed the “SMC” you can allocate users in a very easy way.

If you want to limit the user usage time you can enter a start date  in “Activated From” and an end date in “Activated Until”.

Check the Number of Users

Take a look into the License overview to find the value “EXCEL_NAMED”.
