What does this "Header" Authentication Type mean for QVWS Settings under SETUP TAB in QMC
From Qlik Community it is defined as :
Header, meaning that an http header specified under Parameters is used:
If a customized login system is used, the http header has to be specified, in order to configure the login process in the QlikView AccessPoint. To configure the header name, enter a value in this text box.
Default value: QVUSER.
To configure the prefix used for the header, enter a value in this text box.
Default value: CUSTOM\
What I got is that by default users defined in custom directory (CUSTOM\) is authenticated as mentioned in the Prefix. Though I didnt get the Header Name section or how the user logging in into Access Point is authenticated.

Header Name = the http header tag/attribute name that specifies the authenticated username. QlikView needs this info to tie a existing/dynamic license assignment, groups and other permissions to an authenticated user.
And, I hope you get the message: QlikView doesn't do authentication (except if you select Custom Authentication); an external system has to do the authentication.
