Limit access to data

I have a dashboard that has data in it for 500 locations. 

I have a security table that shows which locations each user has access to in the back end system that this data came from.  So this table will have a row for the userid and the location id for each location they should have access to.

When a user logs into the dashboard I want to only display the location or locations that user should be able to see.  They can see the entire dashboard.  But only for those locations. 

I will also have managers that can see an entire division or region and are not limited to just a location.  That information is also in this access table. 

Can something like this be done in Qlik Sense?

Re: Limit access to data

Yes. You can utilize QlikView section access for this. A table that has userid and locationid should be used for implementing who sees what basically. Check these posts for familiarity and background:

Hi Mark,

You will have to have make use of section access to achieve this.

Works the same way as it does in qlikview.

Re: Limit access to data

Both of these reference QlikView.  I need to know how to do this in Qlik Sense.
