Re: allow anonymous users to export data

Hey Alexander,

This is currently a limitation and considered a bug. The reason why you are seeing the access denied error is that we tag any files in /temp/ against a user and then match that against requesting user which does not work anonymous users.

There are currently no workarounds for it unless you authenticate your users.

That was the bad news, good news is that R&D is working on the bug and it has been assigned internally.
Which usually means that it makes the cut quality wise it will ship in the next release (not september)

I think that this is a problem in the QRS.

Re: allow anonymous users to export data

Sorry, I don't understand what you mean? It isn't a bug or it is and was fixed in a previous release?

Re: allow anonymous users to export data

this is an untranslatable play on words, "Так было, есть и будет." In this case, this behavior is "working as a designed" and Qlik that did not plan to change anything in the future. Perhaps if you give a serious business justification for the fact that it can be solved.

Re: allow anonymous users to export data

Probably a misunderstanding from our side also so let's see if can't clear a few things up. We don't consider it a "bug" as it is in fact working as intended.

When you export data we will tag the exported file with who initiated the export so only the user that actually requested the export is able to access the data. However, since you are anonymous we can't tag your user to the file since you don't have a user.

So even if we don't consider it a bug we do have what we call a "improvement item" on this exact scenario with a proposed implementation. Currently there is no target release for it but at least it's in the planning stage

Re: allow anonymous users to export data

Thank you both Alexanders.

My customer is using QAP to host embedded charts on a public facing websites. We are using this extension (Qlik Branch) to allow users to make selections in the chart and then export data based on those selections. It works wonderfully with our logged in development accounts, but when we switch to anonymous users on the website we get an error on export. We would love to be able to give the anonymous web users the same access to export the data to Excel.
