I'm not sure where to go now to map the AD user to the spreadsheet user and subsequently make the groupings apply to QVW documents.
I looked at Documents > User Documents > Customer.qvw > Authorization but when I select users from the ODBC directory they don't get access to the customer.qvw in Access Point, however if I add the same person from the AD directory the user does see the QVW.I am using browser authentication.
Re: How do I authenticate users via AD but then authorise qvw document access by user groups that I specify in Qlikview?
If you define the groups in the Qlikview document then your Qlikview document must also contain the AD users. In which case you don't need the groups. You can use Section Access to include your AD users and enable the option Filter AccessPoint Document List Based on Section Access on the Server tab of the Document Properties window.
