How do i allow a user to view a password protected dashboard on qlik Access point without giving them the password?
That is what its set to however the previous developer set a password on a particular dashboard that i need to allow a client access to without giving them the password.
What kind of password?
If the password is set in Section Access, then you can either
I don't understand the reasoning behind giving a user unrestricted access to a password-protected document without the use of that password and without telling what the password is. With respect to this document, both boil down to the same situation.
Or is this password in use somwhere else too?
read on the below topics for QV server side to restrict the user
For Development side we can restrict the user by follw the topic
Jagan Mohan rao explained clearly about the security.Please check once.
Thank you for your response. This document was created by another developer that is no longer available and it seems like he assigned a password to the document set in section access. It has a hidden script which i dont have the password to as well. Any way to go around this?
A lost password for a hidden script with self-contained Section Access data means that you are locked out of the Section Access part of your document. That is, if Section Access data isn't read from an external source but for example from an INLINE block.
A hidden script password cannot be recovered. Any chance of getting in touch with the previous developer?
Normally while we are implementing the section access we will give like
So my suggestion is try to open the qvw file with Admin credentials (user name as ADMIN and give password also ADMIN)
once you entered into the script you will get a chance to edit the script.
if this solution is not worked for you then you need to contact your earlier colleauge who deloped this application there is no other way as i know.
