User Access

Qliksens app's data, which has data of 12 locations, can we restrict certain location to certain users, instead of giving a user access to view all locations?

Re: User Access

Hi,

Yes for that you should take a look at the SECTION ACCESS.

you can start from here:

Re: User Access

This link talks about security rules and actions applied to it (duplicate, publish, replace, start...).

you talks about locations, which is a dimension in your model, right ?

Re: User Access

Baarathi, your link refers to security rules. It controls access to the app.

Section Access is a possibility to restrict users to parts of data within a app.

See help for example and details:

Re: User Access

Youssef belloum, I think I'll give one more example for the scenerio on which i need to implement,

CEO---> Project Manager--->Employee

CEO has access to view and edit all the data in the app.

Manager has access to view and edit data related to his project.

Employee has access to view data related to his project.

How to implement these restriction in qliksense?

Re: User Access

Re: User Access

Yes you can do this but it is completely different from what you described on this topic.

I Suggest you to open another thread well detailed so that Community members can find easily the answers that they looking for.

thanks

Re: User Access

Yes of course, in your case I think you should do a data reduction on your project field.
