QV report availability on AccessPoint in DMS authentication

Hi All,

We have recently moved from NTFS to DMS authentication mode in Qlikview 11 Sr2 version. We have one requirement to categories the users group in a way that, one user group would be able to see set of report; though more report are deployed on the server. once users from that group login into Accesspoint only reports for that group is authorized, should be available to see not the other reports.  can we achieve this in DMS authentication? I am sure that we can provide documents CALs to group or user under User Documents Tab. Would it be sufficient?

You cannot assign CALs to groups, only to users.

Licenses and permissions are completely different things. Both are managed in QMC. Licenses will grant you access to all documents that QVP has distirubted to you. In this way, you can still block access to a document for which a user has a valid CAL.

So yes, you can selectively enable access to documents by simply assigning Doc CALs to user/document-sets, but you have to make sure that documents have been distributed to those users (Source documents tab) or that users are authorized to access those documents (see User documents-tab) .

If you can enable DMS, that means that you're using an Enterprise Edition QVS, correct? If you also have a QlikView Publisher, you can now distribute (see Source documents-tab) documents to users or entire groups, or authorize  (see User documents-tab)  users or groups to view certain documents and not the others.

The simple fact that you grant specific users access to documents in this way, makes them visible in the AccessPoint. Users that have not been granted access will not see a document in the AccessPoint.

This access is managed by DMS in local files that are kept together with the published documents.

Assigning a license to users will not by itself grant access to documents (except when every document is distributed by default to "All authenticated users")

IMHO you cannot assign CALs to groups, only to users.

Hi pcammaert, thanks for reply, Yes, we have DMS mode available with us along with the publisher license. i just wnated to confirm; can we just provide the docuemnt's CALs in User Documents tab to Custom User or Custom User Group and all the QV report accesses will be managed by QMC? one more doubt I need to clear here, we are planning to provide Documents CALs under User Documents to Custom User Groups, will this be sufficient to handle QV report permission? same as providing documents CALs to the single Custom Users?
