restricting user's access

How can restrict data access for different users in qliksense app? for example i have mentioned the below scenerio

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: restricting user's access

Like Francesco said,

there is DATA ACCESS and ITEMS ACCESS rights.

for DATA ACCESS it is the SECTION ACCESS that you will need.

but for your case, like described on your previous post, you are looking for ITEMS ACCESS RIGHTS.

I'll try to give step by step how to do this later

Re: restricting user's access

Baarathi, just to make it clear

On qliksense entreprise, the concept of project don't exist, there is only apps, streams, Content and other Items that you can link with security rules.

so it is ok for having 3 different profiles (CEO, PM, EMPLOYEE)

but you should specify what is the difference between the CEO and the PM in terms of access to resources.

Re: restricting user's access

one logic can be, for example:

Many streams = 1 projects

so, the CEO can access (view/edit) all the data of all the apps of all the streams.

PM: can access (view/edit) all the data of all the apps of one specific stream

Or the opposite.

Re: restricting user's access

Ok so here the CEO and the Project Manager have the same access rights related to data, right ?

Re: restricting user's access

CEO has rights to view and edit the entire data in app. Project Manager has right to view and edit a certain part of data in app.

Re: restricting user's access

I don't think there is such level of details on the security rules...

If a user have access to adit data on certain app/stream/ he can edit all the data inside. (according to my knowledge)

Maybe some experts can take a look here kaushik.solankimto
