I'm setting up my QV server and have a query regarding the use of the QlikView Document Administrators group. I'm following the instructions detailed here http://community.qlik.com/docs/DOC-2538
Is this group still required under the current version of QV, or do all the existing post apply to previous versions.
I have a developer who I assigned to this group to give them the appropriate rights.
Subsequently I have removed them from the group and they can still access the QMC and perform the relevant management tasks.
So is this group still required?
The Group is still needed if you want to Users to have access to only specific Documents who are not QlikView Administrator.
If all users are QlikView Administrator, you don't need this Group.
imho the group is actually not required anymore.
There is an article available " https://eu1.salesforce.com/articles/Basic/How-to-set-up-Document-Administrators?popup=true "
Adding users to QlikView document administrator under users and groups does not provide access to QlikView managent console.
Also adding user group created under a domain will only provide access to QMC but the administrator cannot view anything in QMC.
Document administrator access can only be given by adding specific users under
QMC->System->QlikView Servers -> Choose Server -> Folder Access -> Whole Server -> Document Administrator (Right side).
QMC->System->Distribution Service-> QDS@Choose Server -> General -> Source Folder -> Document Administrator (Bottom middle).
I tried checking it by adding Groups to QMC with QlikView Document Administrator Privilege, QMC was opened but it did not show up any things.
