security?

Hi Folks,

I have 2 separate  dashboards

1)sales.qvw

2) hr.qvw

in this scenario I have one manager and  2 employees

manager

emp1

emp2

here emp1 should access sales.qvw and

emp2 should access only HR.qvw

but manager will have permission to access both dashboards

how to implement section access for this   ?

pls give me an idea ?

Re: security?

Do you want to implement this through Access Point.. If yes, give authorization accordingly.

i.e. manager both app

emp1 sales.qvw

emp2 HR.qvw

Re: security?

Hi commonqlik,

There are a few approaches here.

1. If you are using Access Point, assign Doc CALs to the appropriate users.

2. If could use Section Access that allows certain users access to documents (see Introduction to Section Access or QlikView Section Access Examples)

3. If there are always going to be the 3 same users, you could use the OSUser() function combined with conditional show to hide sheets for these users.

Personally, I would always go with Section Access when it comes to security.

Re: security?

I would rather not use section access in this case - it's possible of course but the real purpose of section access is to restrict data (vertically and/or horizontally) within one application. If you only need to control which user could access an application you could do it with appropriate permissions within the file-system (by using NT) or on the document itself (by using DMS).
