Hide or move .shared and .meta files

Hi Community,

Should be possible to hide the shared and meta data files or tell qlikview to create them in another location?

I tried using the hide option per file but from the application desktop is possible to still saw it.

Any idea will be appreciated.

Regards,

Federico.-

Or create a development tree in a location that isn't being used by QVS as a document folder. Whenever documents need to be propagated to production, copy them to the Document root.

Mounted folders with the Browsable checkbox switched off, can be used to store documents that are reloaded by the server but aren't visible in the accesspoint.

Best practice says to keep everyone - users, developers, managers, santaclaus, president Trump - out of the Document Root.

I have to ask: Why would you want to do that?

Just don't give people access to that folder.

May you live in interesting times!

Thanks Onno for your respond, my answer to your question: It's something that people from BI want not to see, but they need to have access for daily work.

Those files reside into you QV Server, a place that are not supposed to have access by regular users.

Why you want to hide them?

Hi Clever thanks for your answer, the reason is users have a folder inside the server for development and test, so they have access, but the production folder is read only for the users.

Why you mean the user should not have access? is not the correct way?

Create a subfolder for that users and grant access only to that subfolder

You can allso try to to execute a cmd attrib +h DocumentName()*

This will hide the QVW, Meta and Shared in the folder and also the AccessPoint
