Qlik Sense - App Level Section Access

Hi everyone, 

I'm trying to add section access to my apps the same way we have in View which controls what users can see specific apps on the Hub. 

For some reason I can't get this to work, I don't want to add data reduction or anything, I simply want to control what apps can be viewed within a stream. 

This worked on QlikView really well but for some reason I can't get it to work on Sense. Here's  an example script I use;

Section Access;

Upper(UserAccess) as ACCESS,
Upper(UserName) as USERID
FROM [lib://AccessRules/AccessRules.xlsx]
(ooxml, embedded labels, table is [AccessRules])
Where AppName = '$(vDocName)';

section Application;

This used to work with no issues, is there anyone else doing this?

Any help is appreciated.

If you are not using Section Access to limit data, you might want to look at Custom Properties  and Security Rules.

Hi @samvile18 ,

To manage which apps/sheet objects a user can access to, you have to create a security rule on QMC.

I hope it helps.
