Re: Access

Hi,

You can restrict this by using Section Access, for you specify Admin access and for other users you give User access.  So everytime users try to open the file, user name and password is required.

Section Access;

LOAD * INLINE [

    ACCESS, USERID, PASSWORD

    ADMIN, test1, password

    USER, test2, password

];

Section Application;

Regards,

Jagan.

Re: Access

Hi,

PFA file for solution.

Goto Document Properties -> Security -> Edit Script -> Uncheck the options which do not required for normal user.

Now Give module password by clicking "Module Password" in the same tab.

In the attached file when you login as Admin then if you want to reload or change script then uncheck the options done above and after completion do the same security settings defined above.

Admin User Name & Password : Admin & Password.

Normal User Name & Password : Sales & Password1

Hope this helps you.

Regards,

Jagan.

Re: Access

Hi, Avi.

I would recommend having a look at Steve's blog for Section Access.

http://www.quickintelligence.co.uk/help-ive-locked-myself-out/

It gives you an idea of best practices and pitfalls.

Alternatively, there is a new book out called 'QlikView 11 for Developers' that has a good section on security.

Regards,

Neil
