Qlik sense section access

I've searched around but can't find anyone having this issue (Qlik Sense 3.2 SR2).

I have an app in which I'm trying to get section access working, the issue I have is that it doesn't do anything.

First block of app:

SECTION ACCESS;

LOAD * INLINE [

ACCESS, USERID, %AUTHID, OMIT

ADMIN, DOMAIN\ME, ,

USER, DOMAIN\ME, '<ANY>' ,

USER ,DOMAIN\ME, 'TEXTKEY' ,

];

SECTION APPLICATION;

(Table linking %AUTHID is built lower in app and shows in data model)

I've tried limiting everything down to just:

USER ,DOMAIN\ME, 'FAKEKEY' ,

Or removing 'OMIT' field, changing name of '%AUTHID' to be REDUCTION, USERID to NTNAME and generally messed around a lot.

I expected to get blocked from my own app, but in all instances I can still see all the data. Do I need to enable this functionality in the QMC first, or are there user security roles that bypass section access? I can't find any mention of this in the documentation, only that I need to have the above block.


Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Qlik sense section access

For anyone else that looks into this thread that experiences this:

I have found a workaround - between each alteration of the Section Access you need to completely close all instances of the app on your PC (includes cross browser), and open the app again. I've been completely closing all qlik sense tabs between changes, but I would expect that you can get away with just closing the app in question.

Re: Qlik sense section access

OK that's odd - I opened the app up this morning and got an 'Access is denied' (Which is possibly one of the first times I've been excited to see a message like this).

I opened without data to put entries back in section access table. Works. Then tried to remove them again and once again have full viewing access with:

ACCESS, USERID, %AUTID, OMIT

USER, DOMAIN\ME,  ,

At a guess it appears to be some sort of caching issue (maybe). Tried different browsers (IE11 & Chrome), so at a bit of a loss again.
