How to prevent access to the hub? (3.1.2)

With the Service Release 2 for Qlik Sense 3.1 the release notes mention the new ability

     Support for disabling user access to the hub Resource filters can be used to restrict user access to the hub.

How can this be achieved? I figured a new security rule 'HubSections', but no matter whether I left it to true or changed it to false, it wouldn't make the hub behave differently at all. Has anybody more information on this topic?

Thanks alot

Thomas

Re: How to prevent access to the hub? (3.1.2)

Current implementation is limiting in that it will not limit access to the hub but it will remove the link from the app back to the hub.

So if you change the rule "HubSections" condition to something like

user.group="NoHubAccess"

This would mean that for the users in the group NoHubAcces the link from the app back to the hub will disappear.

In most use cases I think this would be enough, but if there are needs to limit access to the hub it would be good to understand these cases if we need to make improvements in the future.

Re: How to prevent access to the hub? (3.1.2)

Hi Thomas,

I got some more information on this, - this setting basically just acts like an ON/OFF switch and nothing more. It does not control access to certain sections of the hub, similar to what the QMC resource filter would do.

Let me know if you need more info.

Re: How to prevent access to the hub? (3.1.2)

Thanks for looking into this, Michael.  I think the problem we are having is that the security rule does not seem to have any effect.  Could you see if you can find us a condition that would do something like block access to the Hub for a particular user or AD group?

Thanks again,

Mark
