Section Access in Qliksense

I have following data
Table:

country,Region,orders,sales

Malaysia,ASP,100,1000

Singapore,ASP,200,2000

India,ASP,300,500

Egypt,EMEA,600,700

France,EMEA,400,900

Mexico,LAM,600,800

I wrote the section access like below

ACCESS, USERID,LOCATION_ID,LOCATION_GROUP_ID1

USER, test,    *, ASP

USER, test,    MEX, LAM

USER, test,    *, EMEA

but the above section access code working on only one row and not giving the expected results?
Please advice on above

Re: Section Access in Qliksense

* should represent all listed values on section access table not all values possible

Re: Section Access in Qliksense

You need to associate the field in section access to the source data.

Please refer here and see if it helps

Identify the lowest level of data and associate the field to section access script in QlikSense.

There is no option in QlikSense to enable/disable security.

Also another note, section access will work only in enterprise version and not in desktop.

See below script for reference

LET vHierarchyDef='Country,State,City';

LET vLevels=Len(KeepChar(vHierarchyDef,',')) + 1;

Section Access;

LOAD * INLINE [

   ACCESS, USERID, REDUCTION

   ADMIN, US\SATISHKURRA,

   USER, US\SALIDINA, ILLINOIS

   USER, US\SREEDENON, TEXAS

   USER, SK, CHICAGO

];

Section Application;

For vAncLevels= 1 to vLevels

LET vAnc=SubField(vHierarchyDef,',',vAncLevels);

Trees:

LOAD Distinct

     UPPER([$(vAnc)]) as REDUCTION,

     [EmployeeGroup]

     Resident Link;

   

Next vAncLevels

Notes from above script

1. This script will reduce the data based on hierarchy level (Country, State and City). If your data do not have hierarchy, specify the column name in vHierarchyDef variable (For example if you want to reduce data only to Country level, only specify Country

2. For ADMIN, REDUCTION column is empty, means access to all data

3. SALIDIN is able to see only data for ILLINOIS state

4. SK is able to see only data for Chicago city

Another important note, if by any chance your load failed, you can still enter into the script by right clicking the app in work folder (hub) and click open without data and perform changes.

If you face any difficulty, please let us know

Thanks

Satish

Note: Link provided by Carlos is a good starting point to implement security in QS

Good luck!

Re: Section Access in Qliksense

HI Satish

Thank you so much for your reply

As per the code you mentioned, It is working for the hierarchy

USER, US\SALIDINA, ILLINOIS

what if Salinda also want to see the data of losangeles from a different state which is California and also want to see the data of the State 'Indiana'??

How this can be possible??
