Using Qlik NPrinting June 2019 Version: 18.104.22.168 and the application are in November 2017 SR5.
The application has section access. A report can be generated, but it shows all data, ignoring an SA. No matter which option(s) I choose in the data connection, the same result occurs. Is it because the service account running NPrinting is an ADMIN, thus ignoring the app SA? Thanks in advance for any/all constructive advice.
Connection requires authentication
The cache and reports will be generated by connecting with the Qlik NPrinting Engine Windows service user.
If this user is present in the QlikView document section access table, data will be limited accordingly.
It is hard to understand how you test it. The usual approach would be:
then you can try to run a report to a user whose data should be reduced based on section access. For thesting you can create folder destination for such user and check results.
If you still have issues I suggest taking screenshot of your connection, taking screenshot of few users settings and posting detail explanation on what steps you are taking one-by-one to test if section access works.
Related to this topic, how does it work when an user is creating a report and he/she wants to take data from an app with section access? Should a standard user be able to do that?
Also, if the user has limited access to an app, what will an admin user see in the NPrinting report? Same as the one that developed it or more?
It depends on the settings used in NPrinting connection.I you use "Apply user section access for reports" then first i would suggest is to use an account in connection definition which has access to all data. Then with"Apply user section access for reports" option turned on users should only see their own data based on section access just like in QlikView or Qlik Sense. That applies to developers and end users.
If "Apply user section access for reports" is turned off then section access in NPrinting is not applied.
I suggest to study documentation in this regards! https://help.qlik.com/en-US/nprinting/May2021/Content/NPrinting/DeployingQVNprinting/Section-access....
