Implementing DMS Authorization in qlikview 11?

There isn't much to implement. In QMC->System->Setup->QlikView Server->Security, switch document security from NTFS to DMS. An Authorization tab will appear for every User Document. Make sure that all users that used to have NTFS rights on specific documents, now have those rights also in the Authorization tab.

If you have a Publisher, then nothing much will change either. After the next Reload, the Distribution step of the reload task will now store document permissions in the .meta files instead of NTFS ACL. The effect will be the same.

Note that you need an Enterprise Edition-QVS for DMS to be available.
