Can we remove filters/groups assigned to users in NPrinting 17 using an import task?

Using NPrinting 17 (November release):

  1. Is it possible to remove a user from a specific group using an import task? The user and group both should still exist, but the user should only be removed from that group.
  2. Similarly, it seems like you can only asign new filters to users using an import task, whereas I would like to remove some filters. That is, only remove this filter for that specific user and not removing the filter itself.

The business wants to have full control over user management through an Excel file, but I noticed the limitations stated above. Is there another way to make this work (without opening the Qlik NPrinting server).

Hi JJ,

Yes.

In your Excel file, list only the Groups & Filters that the user should belong to on the Users sheet Groups & Filters columns respectively. Options 2, 4 & 8 (at least) must be enabled on the Import task.

Hi Daniel,

Thank you for your reply.

Unfortunatelly, option nr. 4 is not available on our NPrinting server (Novermber 2017 release).

I don't see it listed in the documentation of the latest release either (February 2018), but perhaps the documentation is lagging behind.

This option would indeed solve the problem at hand. May I ask what version of NPrinting you are using?

Hi JJ,

I am using February 2018 (18.0.3). I can confirm that the option does not exist in earlier versions so you will need to upgrade to use it.
