Fernando,

In your app, you forgot to uncheck the options from the Sheet Properties > Security tab.

Open your app with qvadmin and uncheck these options, save and close qlikview.

When you open your app using qvuser, you will not be able to see the charts properties anymore.

Hi Fernando,

You can achieve that by implementing a section access in your app.

Then under Settings > Sheet Properties > Security tab > uncheck the desired options like "Access Sheet Object Properties".

Make sure to check the flag "Admin Override Security" under Settings > Document Properties > Security tab.

I've attached a sample app (type as user: qvadmin or qvuser).

the user(s) of access type USER cannot access the object properties while the ADMIN can.

Hope this helps.

Hi manojqlik,

When you define the section access, you specify the access type as ADMIN or USER.

Then in the document properties you select which options you want them to be available when a user of type "USER" logs in to the app.

We can check the "Admin override security" flag to avoid applying security measures on users of type "ADMIN".

You can also set other security options related to objects but this time from the Sheet Properties > Security tab, just like in the example attached above.

Note that both of Security tabs (under Document Properties and Sheet Properties) are not available when logging in with a user of type "USER".

Hi Fernando,

You can do it without section access too

Goto Sheet properties--> Security tab

uncheck the options there as per your requirement and check the Apply to All sheets, then click ok.

You will get as you wished.
