Install Qlik Sense certificates

To use Qalyptus with Qlik Sense, you must have the Qlik Sense certificates installed on the machine where Qalyptus is installed. there are two cases.

1- Qalyptus is installed on the same machine with the same user

If Qalyptus is installed on the same machine as Qlik Sense and with the same user (the user running the Qlik Sense and Qalyptus Server services), you should not install Qlik Sense certificates because the certificates are already installed.


Installing Qlik Sense certificates in this case will cause Qlik Sense to malfunction. To resolve this issue, follow the instructions in this article.
