Enable QV Document Administrators access to "Section Access Managment"

Hi,

Is there a way to enable QlikView Document Administrators access to the QMC section: Users --> Section Access Management?

Not using standard QMC tools (just Status and Documents are available)

You could rewrite the QMC code however. It's just JavaScript

Hi Fredrik,

I think the reason for that is security. If I can see the section access, I can get into the document.

... but if there was an option to add a document administrator to a specific Section Access table within the Publisher, the doc. admin could manage the user access only for his/her apps. I mean, it's possible for a document admin to add users to a normal distribution task, but it's not possible to manage section access.

True.

I guess that it is like that because, unlike Section Access in a document, Section Access in the Publisher defines global tables that are not linked to any document at all. Granting access to Document administrators would suddenly give them access to permission tables that are used by more documents than just the ones they are allowed to manage. QMC has no idea which documents are using a particular Section Access table in Publisher.
