Hey Guys – with all the excitement around our new Qlik Sense Enterprise deployment options:
- Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows
- Qlik Sense Enterprise on Kubernetes
- Qlik Sense Enterprise on Qlik Cloud Services
…I wanted to share a brief video to show you how easy it is to setup a tenant along with an integrated identity provider (IdP) to provide authentication, using Qlik Sense Enterprise on Qlik Cloud Services. (Please note in this video I use OKTA as my integrated IdP but Auth0 is also supported. This video does not go into setting up the actual IdP subscripition so please have that available prior. ) In order to get access to Qlik Sense Enterprise on Qlik Cloud Services please contact your Qlik representative. If you are want to experience Qlik Sense right away you can always sign up for a 30 Day Trial of Qlik Sense Business. To learn more about Qlik Sense Business check out this blog.
First just to recap – Qlik Sense Enterprise on Qlik Cloud Services is a deployment option on Qlik’s multi-tenanted SaaS-based analytics platform. Offering all the great features of Qlik Sense Enterprise on a secure scalable SaaS environment managed by Qlik.
When setting up your tenant and IdP there are few things you should know.
#1 – Once your information has been entered into the Qlik customer system, you should receive an invitation via email to register your Qlik Sense Enterprise tenant. You will login using the email used when registering for a Qlik Account on our web site. The tenant registration process will guide you to select a region for the tenant to operate in as well as create a tenant name for the URL structure that is to be used to access your Qlik Sense tenant.
#2 – you need to have an identity provider (IDP) setup to provide authentication to your Qlik Sense tenant. This can be done currently using Okta and Auth0. This video will focus on Okta, but the steps outlined will be similar. Setting up an IdP is beyond the scope of this video and it is assumed you have the appropriate access and rights to manage it as we will need some information from the IDP environment to setup the tenant.
3# – you will configure your Qlik Sense Enterprise tenant to use the identity provider and will need your IdP client key, client secret from the IDP system. You will also need the OpenID Connect metadata URI from your Qlik Sense tenant used within your IDP configuration as well as a callback URL to be added to your OKTA configuration.
Let’s get started.
