Problems with Publisher and Section Access

Hi everybody,

We are using Publisher enterprise and it is working fine. Except for documents that use a section access. When publisher is going to open de document see this error "The document failed to open". If i dont's use section access, publisher reload the document perfectly.

Any idea?

Could be the following:

Go to your task in the Publisher and click on the "+" with the desctription "Section Access" (or something like that.) There you can enter your access credentials for the reload.

If this suggestion does not work, but it should Big Smile, there is another option. From the Publisher ref manual section 13:

13 QLIKVIEW PUBLISHER 8.50 AND

SECTION ACCESS

A very important change in QlikView Publisher 8.00 and onwards compared to older

versions is that QlikView Publisher 8 respects the Section Access of any document it

works with. This means that if you have a Section Access in your document script

you must add the account that you are running the Execution Service (XS) under, or a

group to which this account belongs, into your Section Access. The access level

granted must be "ADMIN". If the XS is running under the local computer accounts

Local System or Network Service, the computer account must be added to your Section

Access. The account name of the computer is usually the name of the computer

plus a $ sign, e. g. PublisherServer$. If a dynamic reduction is made, the reduction

field must be left empty.

Example:

Section Access;

LOAD * INLINE [

ACCESS, NTNAME, REDUCTIONFIELD

ADMIN, PUBLISHERACCOUNT,

USER, HIC, A

USER, TNI, B

Section Application;

Load …

It is very important that the line with the Publisher Account has no value in the reduction

field column (REDUCTIONFIELD in this example). If you instead would use a

wildcard "*" in this column, this would limit QlikView Publisher's access to the data

in the QlikView file to other values defined in the Section Access (A and B in this

example; however, the values C to Z would not be included in your file).

If this is not done correctly, the document cannot be used by the Publisher at all or the

data it can access will be limited.



Hope this helps!

Karl, thanks for all, that resolved the problem.

I think that Kris's solution it's fine, but system administrator's don't give me the User's password of the Execution Service.

Thanks for the replies.
