Export user with roles and filters

Hi,
You can import with an import task users with groups and filters.
Is there also an option to create a report with the current available user with there roles? Maybe also linked to a group and filters?

Regards,
Wouter

Re: Export user with roles and filters

The APIs will also give you lists of users.

Documentation here:

Qlik NPrinting API

I'd recommend using the API.

Querying the DB directly is a bit of a hack and if you write to the DB accidentally the outcome could be undesirable...

Re: Export user with roles and filters

Anyone an idea? Is this an option? Or is it on the wish list for a new release?

Not out of the box..

You can do it by connecting to repository database NPrinting Repository Database - Name‌and running queries

You can use QlikView, Sense or PgAdmin Tool:

pgAdmin - PostgreSQL Tools

Re: Export user with roles and filters

Both thanks for your replies.
So I can use the Qlik Nprinting API's. But if I want to create a report and distribute it with nprinting, I have to follow the next steps?
1. Create a Qlik Document with data I get from the Qlik Nprinting API
2. Create an app, connection and report linked to this Qlik Document

3. Distribute this report.

Is this right?
