NPrinting June 2017 - Security

Could you please confirm when NPrinting will include functionality to inherit the security/entitlement profiles such as section access, LDAP, & other role based entitlements for both QlikView & Sense ?  This is a critical aspect in providing the ability to offer this as part of a managed shared service across multiple business entities/lines of businesses.

NPrinting already supports Section Access.

Starting with the June 2017 version, we released APIs that allow you to manage users thru external systems (see Qlik NPrinting API reference ‒ Qlik NPrinting). As part of our roadmap, we will aim for further integration via releases of sample code and/or front-end enhancements. These are targeted for late 2017 - early 2018 at the moment.

The APIs also allow you to assign roles to NPrinting users. The permissions for the roles themselves have to be created in NPrinting since the associated actions are distinct from both View and Sense. The possibility of creating a role via the APIs is something we are considering as well.

Thank you for your timely response, Stephen. I will read through the API documentation that you provided. From an Enterprise Service perspective, there is assumption that the NPrinting features would be fully integrated within the Core Products over time, utilizing the same infrastructure and server configuration tools.

Look forward to see that on the Roadmap…………..
