Problems setting document features security with section access

I've created an app and I want to disable its' user some functionality (for example data reload). I composed a hidden script like that:

Section Access;

LOAD * INLINE [

    ACCESS, NTNAME

    ADMIN, Mydomain\Alex_Zakr

    USER, Mydomain\Vasiliy_Pupkin

];

Section Application;

After that I disabled Reload and Partial Reload in Settings - Document Properties - Security - User Privileges. Saved, exited and opened the doc again. A textbox with OSuser() shows me "Mydomain\Alex_Zakr" and I can access and change Settings - Document Properties - Security again (that's, AFAIR, a sign of ADMIN access), but the Reload button us greyed out. So I don't understand, whether I am treated as admin or as user. And how my task can be done using windows authentication. Thanks in advance!

Hi

Is the "Admin override security" checkbox in Document Settings | Security checked? You will need this as well as the Reload checkbox.

Hi,

In document properties-> user privileges are for all the users and those are not defined user wise. Those are defined for the document itself. So if you unchecked above options you can't do a manual reload until them check again. In this case you are not treating as anyone (admin or user) since it is a document property itself.

BR,

Video #7 says that you're not right. Or I do miss something?

The example, you provided, doesn't help to solve document features problem. It is an example of cutting data by imposing restrictions, but not cutting document features based on the NT authorisation

It seems to be a bug of 11.20.12235.0. And it is not connected with NT Auth. With basic Qlik auth it is just the same. As soon as I unckeck the ability to reload, the button gets greyed out regardless of the ACCESS type of the account I'm logged in.

PS:

ADMIN: Login - AI, PWD - AP

USER: Login - UI, PWD - UP

Maybe you can check with some other versions?

Damn! You're right ;-). That solved the problem for ADMIN. Just wonder, why this checkbox wasn't paid attention it the Video... Thanks a lot!
