Authentication on access point ?

Hi All,

It’s a SBE QV server version 11.

I had a couple of  questions in mind:

1)      Lets say there are 3 QVW’s( let call them x.qvw,y.qvw and z.qvw ) deployed on the access point. I want  x and y documents to be visible to certain set  of  users and z document to another set of users.

Can it be done ?

Note: Certain set of users  shouldn’t be able to see the applications that they don't have access to.

2)      I know that by using section access, we can prevent unauthorized users from accessing the file on the access point.

       Currently everyone on the domain can access the applications on the access point ( I haven’t put section access yet in the script editor) as Windows domain authentication is used.

My requirement is only authorized users must be able to access the application on the access point , and these users must be able to login automatically ie via Windows domain authentication .

I know I can specify the username and password in the hidden script , and the user can login after typing in his credentials, my requirement is these users must be able to login automatically without being prompted for username and password, while other users though in the same domain who are not authorized shouldn’t be allowed access to the files on access point.

Can this be done ?

If yes how ? Links to documentation or videos would be very helpful.

Thanks

Swarup

Re: Authentication on access point ?

you can create 2 folder and split the user group into 2 and provide NTFS security in the server

You can set the user access on the files in windows to allow specific users/groups to see them. The ACL will be respected by accesspoint and only the documents that a user has NTFS rights to will be displayed

Re: Authentication on access point ?

Thank you Srikanth and Johannes, I appreciate your help.

Could some one  guide me on how this is done, though I have extensively worked on development of qvw on the  desktop . I haven't had much of server experiance.

I would be really grateful if somebody  could guide me in the right direction ( with snapshots on how it can be done or link to a video showing how it is done)

I'm using the following server :

Windows Server 2008 R2 standard

64 bit OS

Thanks
