Restricting access to QMC streams in qliksense

Hi,

Can I restrict the stream access in QMC in qlik sense so that only stream members can see respective stream (in QMC) and related apps within to which they have access?

Re: Restricting access to QMC streams in qliksense

Hi Manoj,

It should be possible, but you will need to play around with the security rules.

Probably the easiest way to do this is to create a new admin role with restricted access to the streams menu in the QMC and assign that to the user.

The current roles allow full access to the parts of the QMC that they're able to access, so they won't suit your needs.

best regards,

Simon

Thanks Simon,

However, my query is like this: even if I create new admin role, the question is how to restrict access to streams menu for given user.

Ex: When the user logs in QMC, it can see all the streams in system irrespective of user is supposed to. I need that restriction.

My first question is who do you have logging into the QMC and what are their roles?

I think you need a custom rule based on a Custom Property that you create.  The rule would be defined for Streams and Apps and would give read access only if the user had the correct value in their User Custom Properties.

Something like below.  QlikGroup is the Custom Property that I created.

I decided to do some testing and it appears this is more complicated than I thought.  My current setup is not working how I thought it would.

So if I figure it out and will post the solution.

Thanks Mark,

I tried to look out for custom security rules as well. Found "stream" - which restricts the stream access for user in hub. The strange thing is that it applies to both QMC and hub. It works in hub but doesn't in QMC.

Hi,

I think I found the way out. Tweaked the security rule "contentadmin" a bit and seems working.

Dummy contentadmin rule:

((user.@userteam=resource.@userteam and resource.resourcetype="Stream") and (user.roles="ContentAdmin")) where userteam is custom property having user's group.

Many thanks.

For QMC access you need to use QmcSection_Stream
