I am completely new to Qlikview and I am trying to assign a document to an specific user. This user already exists in the system, he can see several documents when he accesses to Qlikview using a browser, but he needs a new one (there was an expert in Qlikview working in the company who managed Qlikview and did all these tasks but he left and I have just started with it).
I´ve tried to assign the document to him entering the Qlikview Management Console, Documents and selecting the desired one, but there is no option to assign it to him.
Could anyone give me some hints on this matter please?
I must admit that this is not the simplest administrative operation you want to perform.
Two preliminary questions:
Does your QlikView setup have a Publisher license? To verify this, goto QMC->Documents and see whether there is a Source Documents tab available. If there is, then you have a full Publisher. And that's a good thing.
Does your QlikView server run in DMS mode. If not, there will be no Authorization tab in QMC and you will have to revert to assigning NTFS rights to the QVW file. To verify this, navigate to WMC->System->Setup->QlikView Servers->Your QVS->Security->Authorization. The radio button indicates either NTFS or DMS.
