Allowing range of data based on user in Qlik Sense web integration.

Hello,

I am currently in charge of developing an online platform used to show general data to some clients.

I have been playing with Qlik Sense Desktop for a few days now and Qlik Sense Platform (Server) seems to be the right choice since you can easily embed items (of an application) in a website.

The idea is to have one big Qlik Sense application and restrict the shown data based on the user (client) accessing the website.

An example would be: if UserID = 1, then restrict data to 2010-2012, else if UserID = 2, then restrict data to 2013-2014 and so on...

Do you know whether this kind of permission system would be achievable and how hard would it be?

If you need more information, don't hesitate to ask as I tend to forgot important information.

Thanks in advance for any answer!


PS : I hope this post fits the "New to Qlik Sense" category.

Hi Aaaa Aaa,

What you are asking to do is possible with Section Access.

Here is the documentation on Section Access for Qlik Sense:

If you want to see a video of Section Access in action, watch this: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxBEVQthCb29OHFySW1UZkw1SFk/view?usp=sharing

It's for QlikView, but the premise of Section Access is the same for both products.

Hello Jeffrey,

Thank you very much for the links, I will dig into Section Access right now.

I have one more question: I know it is possible to export straight tables from Qlik Sense to Excel, it that option also available if I embed a Qlik Sense chart in a website?

Have a nice day!

Hey,

Yes you can export data from Qlik Sense, either a user can natively right click an chart and export data (if they have the export privileges) or you can do it programmatically.

Hello,

Thank you for the tip, I will try to do it programmatically since exporting pivot tables would be a huge plus.
