How to give access to Access Point to someone outside the domain network ?

Hello everyone,

I would like to give access to a Qlikview to some customers of my company. So I need them to be able to access to the access point from the outside. I also need them to access the Qlikview with an account because according to who there are, the customers won't access the same tables in the qlikview.

I have read several things about enterprise edition, but I have Small Business Edition and I don't have publisher.

First, can I do something woth Qlikview or is it to the network administrator to give access to the access point url and protect it with a password for example ?

Thanks for your advices

Hi Laura,

Check this.

With SBE you can give him access in co-ordination with your network team.

Ask them to provide you Public IP on the server. Yo can create a user on local server and provide them access.

Hope it helps

Thanks Ashfaq,

So, I have to ask to the IT to create a public IP of the webserver.

Then, to give access, I need to create a new AD for external users (is that mandatory or can I just create an account for them in the AD of all users ?) .

Then, what happens when people goes to the url of the access point ? Is there a prompt where they have to enter their credentials ? And with that there are identified and can use the CALs I have attribute to them ?

I am just not sure about how the security and the identification work (like the last person who posted in the topic you send me )

Thanks again

Hi

You can create user in local directory too instead of creating them on active directory.

Then, what happens when people goes to the url of the access point ? Is there a prompt where they have to enter their credentials ? And with that there are identified and can use the CALs I have attribute to them ?

Yes, they will be prompted to enter credential. It will be the same we created in local directory above.

And you have to allocate cals to that account in order the to have access. You can use section access to reduce fields and data you like.

Hope it helps.

Connecting to your network through VPN will also help to access the dashboard outside of your network.

Laura,

I had a similar problem when we had a SBE qlikview server.

A customer ( non-employee) wanted to access apps deployed on access point) then I found

SBE only supports Windows Active Directory to handle security and access control.

This might be useful:

Hi Swarup,

Is there a problem with creating an AD account for an external user ?

Laura,

You'll have to request your manager for it. At my place they won't create a windows authentication login account for a non employee.

Thanks

You may need to  create a test account for a external user in the Active directory ( You'll have to get in touch with the company network admin) .

I remember we had gotten in touch with  experts to find a work around , but failed in the end.

Hi Laura

We are doing something similar here.

We have SBE for our dev/internal environment and Extranet Edition for our external/production environment which is accessed by our customers.

We use CALs that support anonymous users (Session/Document/Usage) on the production environment you cannot have anonymous users on SBE the setting is disabled. 

We access the documents and restrict data visibility by section access.  Access to documents is given through a link in the customer portal not Access point as we don't want anonymous users accessing it we only use ccess point internally with named/authenticated users.
