Newly created folder not visible under source documents in Azure QMC?

We are creating the similar qlik tasks in the Microsoft Azure QMC by comparing with local dev QMC..

As a part of this we have added a new min folder in the Azure source documents folder in the server and expecting the same to be present in the Azure QMC under source documents as well.. 

But surprisingly that mini folder is not visible at all in the QMC.. 

Please help me am a missing any setup here.. 

Thanks much in advance...

Re: Newly created folder not visible under source documents in Azure QMC?

Hello,

I assume that with mini folder you mean having added a subfolder to the existing Source Documents folder?

In this example, I created a new folder called "Test" in 'C:\programdata\qliktech\sourcedocuments', which is my default source docs folder. 

After a little delay during which the service needs to scan for the folder (or you can just restart the Distribution Service), it should then show up.

If the folder does not display afterwards, like it does here:

source test.png

 

... then there is a good chance that the permissions are incorrect and the service account running the Distribution Service doesn't have access to it.

Thanks For the Quick reply on this,

I tried after restarting the QDS as well, still the subfolders are not visible in the QMC under Source documents... How to check on the permissions and access to distribution service.

Re: Newly created folder not visible under source documents in Azure QMC?

You can check the permissions directly in Windows. Right click on the folder > Properties > Security tab > and then check if you can see the account in there. Or click Advanced in the same tab, click Effective Access, Select a User, and check through that. If you need more instructions for this, you can find those online, for example here.

Just a side note to Sonja's post, the other piece of the security may be related to network share permissions, which are NOT picked up by Windows Effective Permissions, that is only checking the NTFS rights, you have to check the network share permissions separately and manually determine the most restrictive permissions of the two and that is what applies to things.  Hope this helps future browsers.
