Generate QVD and Sharing guidelines


We are getting into more governance portion for our Qlik sense server instance. Our plan is to created qvd for commonly used data. we want to create folders on some other location other than qlik sense server as shared folder specifically for qlik sense. Below are examples of folder structure. we want to assign AD group permissions to these folders strictly so that no one can access data which are not related to their department.




1) when scheduling task from qlik sense how does it write into these QVD as we set permissions on these folders. Can we run task under any service account so that we can assign service account permissions to these folders ?

2) How can we expose these QVD to department developers so that they know this QVD exists and they can use it

Are there any guideines associated with this ? Does our approach is good ?

Re: Generate QVD and Sharing guidelines

Hi all,

I need an assistance for the same requirement. Could anyone please advise on this?

There are number of qvds stored in the server as part of different dashboards. There are few super users who wants to access the qvds directly and create their own dashboards in their qv desktop.

Is there any other way other than sharing the qvd folders in windows?

Thanks & Regards,
