User groups and security rule automation in qlik sense

I am connecting UDC to ODBC SQL . So I have a user table and attribute table where I am defining the type of group the user belong to.

   

IDUser idTypeValue
11groupSales
22groupFinance
33groupMarketing

Then I will be using the group information in security rule . Is there a way to automate this process so that whenever a new group is

created the security rules are created automatically and no manual intervention is required.

I'm looking for same thing to avoid all the security hassle but unfortunately there is no straight answer to this.

It's something new and if you could find a tutorial on this then probably you can or you'd have to do it the usual way by creating security roles in QMC

If your Value field is for Apps then I don;t see a problem, just add/delete the users to Custom properties you have already created.

Groups would be already assigned, rules will be created, you just need to update the users in QMC.
