Hi All,

We have requirement where certain set of users need to be restricted from accessing  particular sheets in a application.

I tired both the below process but none of them worked.

Sheet or App Object Level Security Qlik Sense

We have 10 sheets out of which 2 sheets need to restricted for set of user group.

If there are any alternative methods please let me know.

Really appreciate your help.

Hi Bilal,

I tired as your described but not able to achieve.

I have Application Name as: Salesforce with sheets name as 1. RawData 2.SalesforceData.

I created a Customer Property

-->SheetLevelSecurity with resource filters selected as Users and gave values RawData only.

--> In Users selected one username (User1) and in Custom Properties I add value RawData for SheetLevelSecurity.

4. Createed a new security rule, and select "App.Object_*" in resource filter.

5. Add the following in the Advanced conditions

(( or

When I logged in(i.e.User1) I could see both the Sheets.

Not sure if I have done anything wrong here.

Any thoughts?

Hi Boycke,

I have Salesforce as Application Name and 1.RawData 2.SalesForceData as sheet names.

I created a custom property InternExtern with values Extern and Intern and assigned User with Extern value in custom properties of User.

Then created Security Rule for App Object Access as

(((user.@InternExtern = "Extern" and ( like "*[$w]" or (resource.objectType="masterobject" or resource.objectType="LoadModel" or resource.objectType="measure" or resource.objectType="LoadModel" or resource.objectType="dimension"))))

As per you're statement below

So if you are a external user and the sheet has [$E] in its name, you can see it.

I should see only RawData sheet but I am seeing both the sheets. Did I do anything wrong here?

Really appreciate your help.

Hi Sridhar,

I think in your case you are being overruled by the standard rules of Qlik Sense.

Forgot i did this….

I switched off some standard rules in Qlik Sense, en created some new ones with reduced rights.

i think the rules you need to evaluate are:

- CreateAppObjectsPublishedApp (If you have read rights on an published app you should be able to create sheets, stories, bookmarks and snapshots belonging to that app)

- CreateAppObjectsUnPublishedApp

     (If you have read rights on an unpublished app you should be able to create app objects belonging to that app)

I think these 2 standard rules are overruling the newly created one.

Try to evaluate these (don't change them, just copy them, adjust it, and disable the Original ones).

Regards Boycke
