Security Rule to restrict Dev Hub for users

Hi,

I am currently managing a Qlik Sense Server version 2.2.4.

What I am trying to do is disable de Dev Hub for all users using a security rule on the QMC. Right know all users can access the Dev Hub and edit Extensions that are currently being used on other apps. Also this feature is best for more experienced users and whould be best if restricted from inexperienced ones.

Is there a security rule that I can use to disable Dev Hub access?

Hi there Jose Federico,

I think what you require isn't possible. Never heard of an option that could make what you want.

Re: Security Rule to restrict Dev Hub for users

We have security rule only for QMC and Hub sections and not for Dev-Hub. So ultimately you have edit the JS file. But it would remove the help, about links as well.

Re: Security Rule to restrict Dev Hub for users

We can achieve it by adding below lines to hub.css file to remove just Dev-Hub, this will not remove help and about links.

li[tid="globalmenu-devhub"] {

    display: none;

}

Re: Security Rule to restrict Dev Hub for users

I did change the file, and yes, it hides de menu option. This does not mean that any user can access the Dev-Hub...

It is a temporary fix, not a real solution. It works only because the average user does not know of the existence of such tools.

I hope a proper security rule is added in a future version (the option is still not there on my current QS Server version, 3.0.4).

Yes it's a temporary solution just to hide the menu. The URL still be working and the user can access if he has dev-hub url. I am using server version 3.1.4, still its not part of the security rule yet.

Re: Security Rule to restrict Dev Hub for users

I am currently running 3.1 and using the GSS structure for security and access.

When I login as someone who is a QlikConsumer they do not see the Dev Hub.

You might want to look at upgrading and implementing the GSS.  Or maybe just implementing the GSS.

helmsman Below security rule can give read only access, so that users don't modify extensions.

What do you mean by "they do not see the Dev Hub."? I cannot see that GSS sec.rules would have anything to do with dev-hub. Also my guess is that dev-hub URL still works..
