Re: how to set userid and password to qlikview objects?

if you want to show/hide objects (chart) depending on the user of the application

you can use the osuser() function to get the user and hide/show in show conditional of the layout tab of the object

Hi Madhu,

as per maxgro‌ , you would set tis on the 'Layout' tab of you chart object in the 'Show' conditional field,

e.g

If(OSUser() = 'James',1,0)

There is a little bit more convenient syntax:

=wildmatch(OSIser(),'*James*','*Bill*','*Andrew*','*Madhu*')
