How to share bookmarks

sorry for posting a basic qns..

this is the first time we are trying to implement share bookmarks feature.. below are the details of our QlikView setup -

- in QV9 QMC, DMS Authorization is selected under server settings --> security

- in Licenses tab, "User Name" is selected for Identification

- For Named user CALs, both Allow license lease & Allow dynamic CAL assignment are checked

- In QMS User Documents, for my QlikView .qvw file, Anonymous authorization is added. And that is the only one added.

- In QV EMC, Allow anonymous is selected

However when a user access QV app using QV IE plugin, the QMC console shows user in <> like <EMEA\XXXXX>. Basically, users are not able to create & share bookmarks..

What settings do I need to change to fix this issue? appreciate any help...

The problem was related to "trust" between the Windows server domain where QlikView Server is hosted and the domain where I logon to. Due to the absence of trust between these 2 domains, I was not able to create/share bookmark/object using IE plugin.

I am using - Allow Anonymous / NTFS setting in QMC.

If your users are anonymous, enable anonymous bookmarks

Thanks Corrado for your reply..

I dont mind changing any of the above settings in QVS... we would prefer each user to be authenticated and all users accessing our documents would not have <> surrounding them

So my question in other words, what kind of settings are required in order to remove anonymous access.. Do I need to use NTNAME in our section access for defining each users domain name & also do I have to add each individual users identity in authorization setting like EMEA\XXXXX?

We are looking to define ideal and recommended strategy for implementing share bookmark/objects feature... If user Adam shares an object X with other users.. then other users should know that Adam has shared the object... I am assuming "Anonymous" access cant provide this...

We have around 200 users.. which are all defined part of our section access.. do I have to add each individual user for each of our .qvw file authorization tab?

I am reading thro QV manuals to read more about how QV handles authentication, authorization... but so far not sure how to define ideal settings for our environment...
