How do I set up user access and why can't I open my files?

Okay, this may be two topics but they may be related so apologies if the former, but bear with me.

New install of v9 server. I have my qvw files in a folder separate from the qvs installation and everyone has full access to these (for testing purposes).

I have a website that has a simple link pointing to "qvp://server.domain/website/filename.qvw" which used to work when I had 8.5 installed.

Now this link behaves as follows: if anonymous login is enabled (Always or Allow) I just get a message saying "Failed to open document, You don't have access to this document" and a message in the qvs event log with EventID=2, Severity=110 "Warning The document <...> Failed to load because of no file access [19]"

The qvw file has no "Section Access" so I thought this would (as it semed previously to do) allow anyone to access the document.

The server has 30 CALs licenced, is set to allow dynamic user CAL additions but doesn't seem to be adding any access information (judging by the table of date/times in Management Console Licenses|CALs screen).

I think I might need a tutorial on setting up access in v9 - where would I look for information on this?

Looking forward I need to restrict access based on non-OS users (i.e. arbitrary username/password) - it looks like the Access section in the QVW is the best way to do this - is that right?

The setup itself is almost trivial if that helps - I will have one file that users would want to open.

Any help gratefully received with thanks,

Keith

Upping an old thread here...

Does anyone know the answer to this one? I have the same problem.

The problem for me was the setting for the file within the QlikView Manager...

go to the User Documents tab/section

click on your file

on the right side of the screen, choose the Authorization tab

Here you can either enter a list of users who will be able to access the file, or you can allow anyone access (anonymous). For Anonymous you need to click the "+" icon, then click the pencil icon to bring up the screen of access rights. Here you get the "Anonymous" option as a tickbox - tick this (and save it and apply it) and any user with access to the server will be able to access this file.

Hope this helps,

Keith

if you are running in NTFS mode please verify that the anonymous account actually has access to the file. the anonymous account defaults to a local user on the QVS machine named IQVS_<machine>.

cheers,
