Security Rules & Data editor


i have a security question concerning the data editor.

I have a stream in which we publish apps to be tested by another developer.

This developer is supposed to look into the data editor as well.

We created two SecRules now to allow users with the custom property 'TEST' to look into all apps in a certail stream.

The users are able to view the apps but i cant get it to work that they see the data editopr as well.

My SecRules for the ressources 'App*,ContentLibrary_*,DataConnection_*' (read, update, delete):



(resource.resourcetype = "App" and resource.stream.HasPrivilege("read")) or ((resource.resourcetype = "App.Object" and resource.published ="true") and resource.app.stream.HasPrivilege("read"))

Can somebody tell me what im doing wrong?

It's not possible to see the data editor for published apps.

If you want to give this possibility you have to change the owner of the published app (put the test developer as owner) so he can duplicate the app into his workspace and look at the code.

Hi John,

Please check my reply in below link

One app accesss to multiple developers in QlikSense

Use Virtual Proxy which will enable Header Auth process for Dev's to move around, login as different users w/o rules need to be created (This should only be used by Developers for security purpose)
