What is the best approach to restricting access to a folder?

My project has multiple folders, and for one of them I want that only one user have access.

Users are of type Document, and only one of them authenticates using Active Directory integration. The others - including this one I want exclusive access to this folder - do not; they are users created on server.

What is the best approach to restricting access to a folder? OSUser ()? Something similar?

Thank you in advance.

Try to include the NTName if the expression doesn't work for the server users.

Re: What is the best approach to restricting access to a folder?

I assume that Users created from the Server have no remote access to the server hosting the Qlik installation. If they do, you can start by utilizing OS security.


You can create a security rule that is based on Qlik Connection (Folder) on QMC to determine who has access to the folder.

This article should assist you Understanding the security rules included in the Qlik Sense default install

Hope this helps.

Re: What is the best approach to restricting access to a folder?

Jerry, the users created on server only access using web.

They are not "real users" on the server...

And I assuming this...

I didn't create them...

I only update the qvw - after work in my computer - in a network shared folder.

OSUser in the Show Folder - Conditional in General Tab from folder - for the user authenticated by AD - works fine, using this - =mid(OSUser(),index(OSUser(),'\')+1) = 'JohnDoe'

Will work in the same way for the other users?

Thank you in advance.

Luiz Carlos.
