Qlik Sense Security rules and Section Access

I would like to ask you if I can use a security rule from qmc for the section access in my script.

Is it possible to make a data redution based on an existing security role from qmc (like using AD group in NTNAME)?

Thank you in advance.

Hi Giannis,

I'm not sure about reading directly from the QMC security rules - but if you want to apply section access based on AD groups, you could output the group members to a text file and read from it. (this can be done for multiple groups and combined into the section access table).

i.e. - to list all members from the group <groupname>

net group <groupname> /domain > groupname.txt

or

net localgroup <groupname>

Hope that helps,

Regards,

LA.

Thank you very much for the immediate response,

Yes, I know that I can use AD Groups like AD Users but my customer wants the grouping he has already in qlik's QMC. That's the problem.

Re: Qlik Sense Security rules and Section Access

the only way to do a data reduction is through section access in script.

while you can use security rules for showing/hiding sheets to users.
