How to authenticate users with DOMAIN User group

Hi All,

We have a requirement from one of our client regarding the user management.

They DO NOT want to manage individual users in the management console, Instead they want to create a domain user group then

add the domain user group to QlikView Server management console under Licenses --> Server --> CALs --> Assigned CALs.

Their expectation is that any user in the Domain Group will get access to QlikView and they do not need to manage inside QlikView.

Any suggestions or alternate solution?

Thanks in Advance,

A.Paul

Hi,

No you can't allocate CALs for a domain or a sub domian since it's for a particular user. Those are User CALs and User has to be defined.

Hi,

You can't do this. You have to assign CAL to Users.

Re: How to authenticate users with DOMAIN User group

Thanks Tharindu and Bill.

Can we have an alternate solution may be using an external authentication with dynamic CAL assignment?

Hi,

You could do this will some type of SSO and have it setup to only pass authentication to Qlik to only those people in the group. Then have Qlik setup for  Dynamic CAL assignment.

You can also look at restricting user coming into IIS.

active directory - Restrict access to IIS site to an AD Group - Server Fault
