Simple .qvw file access via access point

Hi,

I have a .qvw document which i have placed inside QlikTech/Documents folder. It is just a simple .qvw file(and no source). I want to grant access to few users on access point to view this document.

As a named user, I can see and access this document via access point. But, when I assign a document CAL to this document to the user, he/she is not able to access the same. It gives error message: "Failed to open document, you don't have access to this document".

Has anybody came across this kind of issue ?

How can a user access this document via access point when assigned a document CAL ? Let me know if I'm missing something here.

Any help/suggestion on this regard is much appreciated.

Thanks..!!

Regards,

Roushan

I think, I'm able to solve this 🙂

the problem was that 'All Authenticated User' was not assigned to the document, as it was copied directly inside the document. If we publish it via QMC there is an option to assign 'All Authenticated User' to the document. I then, assigned the permission manually on the server, and is accessible now.

Thanks a lot guys for all your help.

Much appreciated.

The error message is a typical message by missing access using section access. Is it used?

No this won't solve your problem.

If there is no document cal the statement would be "there are no document cal for this document for you", so maybe it is another problem.

Can you find this tab:

Documents > User Documents > [select your document] > then go to Authorization tab

ok,

may be secuity in your case is set to NTFS , so go to your QVW document folder and add appropiate

user group . It appears that   in order for qlikview management console to control permissions the user group "authenticated users" must be given "read" security permissions.

even though you don't have section access in the document, the server applies these settings so make sure they are unchecked
