A security rule that grants read only access to the QMC Users and "User access allocations" page?

Hello all,

Can someone please give me a security rule code that that grants read only access to the QMC Users and "User access allocations" page to select set of users?

@Levi_Turner  what do you think? 🙂

The expected behavior is that they can see QMC > Users, but not change any of the user records, and they can navigate to the associated License pages and assign a license to any arbitrary user? If so, what license model is being used? Do you expect them to have the rights to be able to right an associated rule to automatically provision a license?

Hi Levi,

Sorry for the late reply I was away.

That's right, the user only needs Read access. They are simply going to search for the Users in the Users page, and similarly in License Allocation page to answer questions such as does X have a license or does their record exist in Qlik.

We grant the Professional access license to all of our users, each of them. Each user has unlimited access. We do not use any other license types.

So something like this:

  • Name: _QMC > License / User
  • Resource Filter: QmcSection_License*,License*,User*,QmcSection_User
  • Actions: Read
  • Conditions: ((user.name="licenseadmin"))
  • Context: QMC

Obviously you'd need to adapt the conditions section to scope to the user population who you want to target.

I like the solution which works perfectly for allowing people to view the user allocations. 
However now we have a similar challenge where a few users must be able to change the user allocations, but not the license and other security stuff.

So this would be the basic rule granting people with access to the QMC to view the allocations

  • Name: _QMC > License / User
  • Resource Filter: QmcSection_License*,License*,User*,QmcSection_User
  • Actions: Read
  • Conditions: ((user.name="Custom_licenseadmin"))
  • Context: QMC

I have tried to grant certain users additional rights using the following rule, which did not have the desired effect:

  • Name: _QMC > Change User allocation
  • Resource Filter: QmcSection_License.*,License*
  • Actions: Create, Read, Update, Delete
  • Conditions: ((user.name="Custom_licenseadmin"))
  • Context: QMC

This will allow them to allocate/deallocate, but also to change the license.

Does anyone have a similar challenge and solve it?
