Qlik Sense UserID variable for default filter

Hi,

Does anyone know if it is possible to use the 'UserID' variable in Qlik Sense to apply a default filter to an app, whilst also keeping all the other variations of the filter available for selection?


i.e.

- user opens an app and the data is filtered on Field B (which is a name) to show just that users data. The filter also contains all the other users, so that a user can then select and view any other users data as well

- I do not want to use Section Access as this will filter the app for a UserID, however it will not allow the user to then select others.


I want to:

1) pick up the current user that is logged in to a Qlik Sense app

2) obtain the long username - firstname surname - that is stored in QMC

3) use this username to create a variable so that the app defaults to the data for that particular person

so that UserID (QMC firstname surname format) = 'Field B' (which is stored as firstname surname format)

Thanks

Re: Qlik Sense UserID variable for default filter

As far as I know the current (2.2.4) QS version is not supporting a "default" selection.

The only visible suggestion is to add this variable to all Set Analysis formulas in all charts/tables.

You will need to handle "no user selection", "several users selection" cases, but it should work.
