User access in text box

Is it possible to get the user access defined in section access in the script, into a text box in the dashboard ?

I have multiple sheets in my application and want to restrict some sheets only to the users with ADMIN role defined in my section access.

example:

Section Access;

LOAD * INLINE [

ACCESS,USERID,PASSWORD,COUNTRY

ADMIN,USER0,USER0,*

ADMIN,USER1,USER1,IN

ADMIN,USER2,USER2,SL

USER,USER3,USER3,CH

USER,USER4,USER4,US

USER,USER5,USER5,UK

];

Section Application;

I want USER0,USER1 and USER2 to have access to the first sheet. I used the QVUser() function, but if the list of ADMIN users are huge then this did not sound good. So want to know if there is any function that returns access related data.

No there is no real sheet access management function to do this. But as with everything in QlikView, you can use standard ETL techniques to construct your own solution. It all starts with your choice of how you want to define who will have access to which sheet. For an example, see also: Sheets Security with Section Access
