Limiting field visibility in QlikView


I would like to limit the visibility of certain dimension fields for certain users. I mean not just limiting the amount of data visible in a field, but hiding a field completely. Now I have it implemented it by having several dimension groups and then having separate sheets for them and showing them on a condition. But if there are many configurations then it becomes very difficult to maintain.

I tried to delete fields to be hidden from groups in a OnOpenDocument trigger, but macro doesn't work on a Ajax and works on JAVA, but display of listboxes for these groups is messed up.

Is it there any other approach or best practice for that.

Thank you for your support

Hi Darius

I haven't used it myself but your problem might be solved by using the omit feature in section access,

see the reference manual for help and examples.
