A user has been given permissions to a section of the Management Console with a new security rule (example: Apps or Streams), but when they access the console, all sections remain grayed out.

To give a user access to the different sections in the QlikSense Management Console, seperate rules need to be added to allow access to QMC Section Resources. 

The following filters are used to grant access to the different sections. A user with access to a QMC section can open that section, but will only see objects according to the user's access rights.

QMC section resources

QmcSection_App The QmcSectionApp resource

If I give a user (that has no admin roles!) the "QmcSection_App" with "Read" right for "QMC only", then the user can view the App list in the QMC. This works.

BUT the Apps list in QMC, when tested, shows ALL apps, including those that should be invisible (=no rights) according to AUDIT for that user in QMC.

Feels like a bug, or is this known and intended?? Wondering if I should open a ticket.

Trying to view the actual list entry (via edit/doubleclick) gives an error.
But I think the user should not even see that those apps exist, since this it is part of "read" in my opinion.

Might have been just a weird caching issue, since the list now only shows the intended Apps,
AND the same user used to be an admin an hour before.

Hello @john_oll !

Thanks for updating us here. Cache sounds like a likely suspect here. Have you restarted the repository service to clear it or did you see the improvements happen after time?

Hi Sonja,
happened without restarting any services,
happened after applying the "show only own apps" bookmark and switching back to  all (visible) apps that it fixed itself.
If we see it again for another user, I will post an update.

General feedback:
For some of those mentioned it is not obvious what they refer to and if they have any effect.
That is:
What is
QmcSection_CompositeEvent The QmcSectionCompositeEvent resource ?
and what is
QmcSection_SchemaEvent  The QmcSectionSchemaEvent resource   ?

My best guess would be "might be related to task triggers? but not needed, if true, as far as I can tell" .

Hey @john_oll 

Thanks again for the feedback! As for your questions there, let me go take those and ask SMEs/search our documentation some. See if I can figure it out 🙂

@john_oll Aha, found it: Available resource filters 

CompositeEvent Task triggers in the scheduler
SchemaEvent Details for when a scheduled task will run

What is the resource filter for On-demand apps service in QMC?

You can find a list of available filters here: QMC section resources.

Odag is the one you are looking for, I believe (QmcSection_OdagService).
