What is an Attached File? See SS

Hi all,

I'm trying to understand the security concerns/precautions around Data Reduction via Access Control in Qlik Sense.

Could anyone advise what is "attached files" referring to in this paragraph:

Re: What is an Attached File? See SS

Attached Files are data files that are uploaded into the Qlik Sense app. These are special because they are stored within the binary itself. Instead of referencing a folder or database and loading the data from the remote source, it is loading from the embedded file within itself.

So this means, if a user duplicates the app they are also copying the source data with it, which could be a security concern.
