Section Access not working

Hi All,

i am trying for my first time to use section access.

i've been looking on older threads and videos and was trying to do the same but something isn't working for me.

the example below is for a new simple app i created that only has 1 table and the field i want to filter is "STATION" 


Section Access;
AUTHORIZATION:

LOAD * INLINE [

ACCESS, USERID, STATION

ADMIN, *, Coating,


];

Section Application;

 

i am running the script and it seems to work  but when i go inside the app i see all stations

another thing is, in the data model viewer i do not see the section access table, should i see it?

 

what am i missing?

 

thanks!

 

P.S i am using qlik sense November 2018 12.44.1 if it matters

Hi @roisolberg 

The documentation can be found in the following URL:

Managing security with section access

You will need to specify the user id DOMAIN\USERID or groups depending of what you try to configure, change fields and values to Capitals.

Kind regards.

Hi Nadia,

for the example above i used * for the USERID so it should be for all users, and tried to limit the data for STATION = 'Coating' so i wonder if this is something else i missed..

Hi You need to mention the userids and star sign should not work here. Although you can put this sign in any of the reduction keys.
