Problem regarding basic actions in qliksense

Hello All,

I have published an app in qliksense and created a sheet under my sheet.

To a user, i have given access to: Read and Publish only. But on the access point, same user can "Open and Edit" AND "Delete" as well. I am not sure why is it so. If i have not given access of Update and Delete, then why user is able to Open and Edit and Delete the sheets under mysheets. Can anyone help me understanding this?

Thanks,

Nikhil garg

Action ‒ Qlik Sense

Chect the users stream level access and app level access and the security rules setup.

Some example rules to get you started.

Property-based access control ‒ Qlik Sense

Hey Andy,

I have seen all access given to the user. I have only given Read and Publish access to the user. But still user can create and edit the sheets and delete the sheets under MySheets content on access point. For your reference, i am attaching the snapshots.

can you guide me on this, where am i wrong?

Thanks,

Re: Problem regarding basic actions in qliksense

Yes but thats their sheets visible to them.  Its only visible to other users of the stream/app if they publish them hence the access you've given.

They cannot edit the base sheets of the app used by all the other users.

Update gives them the rights to duplicate and edit base app.  Hope that makes sense.

Regards

Andy

Hello Andy,

If i understood your context correctly, then it means, if i will give the rights to user for Update and delete, he/she will be able to edit and delete the base sheets. I have done the same . Pls find attached snaphot.

I have given Update and delete access to user and on accesspoint, but user can not update or edit the base sheets. Pls find attached snapshot. Pls guide on this

They would need to duplicate the app to make changes to the base sheets either update or delete you cant do it directly in the hub.

Hey,

But they can still edit and update the base sheets(by duplicating the sheets), if not given Update and Delete rights.

I am not really very sure if i understood "UPDATE AND EDIT" and "DELETE" rights. Can you explain a bit more?

Re: Problem regarding basic actions in qliksense

no you can't all you can do is take a copy (duplicate) of the base sheet and modify it.  If you descide to publish it will not overright your base sheet.

if the user wants to update the base sheet/app then they need to duplicate their app into their work stream which is a seperate place to modify a copy of the app. This allows chages to the data load etc which you cant do from where you are looking.

When the change is made to this copy app you will need to go into the QMC to publish this app into the stream either as a copy for testing/UAT sign off or to overwrite the original app.  Note the overwrite of the app doesnt remove the other users own sheets they may have already created.

Re: Problem regarding basic actions in qliksense

HEy ANdy,

I am trying to understand your explaination. But what happens when:

1: I have given a user(user with name let say: User1) access to Read, Update and Delete in the stream. And User1 doesnot have access to QMC of Qliksense. I guess Update and delete rights corresponds to Stream. That User1 can update and delete Stream. Is it so? If yes then how?
