Custom groups not working

Hello

I have set up custom directory service provider to allow us to create custom users and groups.

I have also redirected the login page so that the user can authenticate against the custom catalog.

PROBLEM: The groups that I have created and assigned in the authorization tab of a document are not being respected.

  1. SCENARIO: Create a custom user "Fred" .
  2. Create a custom group "Group1".
  3. Assign Fred to group "Group1".
  4. Authorize user "Fred" for document xxx.qvw.
  5. Login to access point as Fred using custom login page
  6. I can see document xxx.qvw
  7. Logout of accesspoint
  8. Authorize only group "Group1" for document xxx.qvw
  9. Login to accesspoint
  10. No documents displayed


Expected behaviour: By only assigning the group 'Group1" as authorized for document xxx.qvw, and having Fred as a member if this group, I expect to have that document displayed in access point.

Any help here will be much appreciated.

Thanks

Francois

Custom groups not working

Franc,

We are also facing same issue with Qlikview 10. Have you heard anything from QlikTech regarding this? is it a bug?

Thanks

Custom groups not working

HI Robins

Unfortunately I have heard nothing of any value yet. The local partners here have replied by saying that they cannot replicate it on their own environments. As far as I know, an official ticket has been logged with Qlikview, but it has been weeks now and no reply. I am going to escalate this , as we are paying maintenance across 3 global datacentres and the support is quite poor.

We have a Qlikview conference here in South Africa on Tuesday next week, and I have managed to secure 2 hours of one of their engineers to discuss some other issues, so will try to get an answer on this too. Will keep this thread alive.

Hi Franc,

did you get a chance to discuss this with QlikTech? Are they going to fix this issue in SR1?

We are facing same problem with configurable ODBC DSP also. Going to log a case with them.

Custom groups not working

We have tested in SR1, but group resolution is still not working.

It was not working for us even in QV 10 IR too.

Custom groups not working

i have a support question running for this at this moment. DMS with non IIS worked fine at 10IR (both user and group) but not for a IIS solution.

in the bugfixes from 10SR1 its mentioned that IIS7 en DMS users should work now (and it does) . .but not for custom groups.

Custom groups not working

I'm running 10, SR1 at our customer now and custom groups works perfect with regards to authorization to a document on the accesspoint.

However, it does not seem to work together with section access. Smiley Sad

How did you set up your custom groups?  I have a situation where I have multiple databases for different clients but have overlapping groups.  Does the group information need to be a number?
