How to restrict Documents in Access Point

Hi ,

I had three application one is sales, one PndL and Logistic. I have mounted them on server.

The problem is all three application are displaying in user login but what I need is it should not show all docs to everyone for eg: Sales department should view only the  sales application, PndL should be viewed by Finance team.

And each team having  20 to 30 users.

Please someone guide how to achieve this. what all changes have to be made in QMC.

I have server and publisher both.

Hi Rapti,

You can do this managing the folder security.

Only add the users to the windows folder who needs to have access to that application

Folder security would be the best approach. The other way would be to use section access. There should be enough documentation available in the community on how to implement section access.

Hi Rapti,

if you are looking to do this all within the QMC rather than as folder security, I would setup each list of users up as an AD group and then within each of your distribution tasks, distribute only to the specific group for each application.


Hope that helps
