What if a user change the password? How to implement it in section access?

Hello,

I have a question in implementing Section Access. Suppose if I use the following code and deploy in publisher. My question is what if a user wants to change the password? How does it reflect in the code?

Section Access;

LOAD * INLINE [

ACCESS, USERID, PASSWORD

ADMIN, ADMIN, ADMIN

USER, USER1, U1

USER, USER2, U2

USER, USER3, U3

];

Regards,

Ashok.

First of all, if a user changes the password, it has nothing to do with Section Access. The PASSWORD field in Section Access means the user will be prompted and must type both username and password to see the app. This field does not sync with LDAP, AD or any other security directory, it is something you are reading from an already existing table or manually using INLINE.

In short: the user cannot change his password in section access unless they have development access (edit script and reload). Otherwise, the password for that QlikView app will always be the same.

You need to do manually  or  you can take different variables for each  USER.  this  case, I  would suggest  You to create  OSUSER()  function for section access.

Before develop something, think If placed (The Right information | To the right people | At the Right time | In the Right place | With the Right context)

If possible use NTNAME instead of USERID and PASSWORD which enabled the possibility of SSO and transferred the authentication to the OS.
