I ran into the following problem when setting up a QV server. I was unable to allow anonymous users to see any applications, but all authenticated users were.
I couldn't find the solution on QlikCommunity either so I thought I'd share here.
First, go to the Management Console -> System ->Setup -> QlikView Servers-> Security. Click the button for "DMS authorization".
Next, go to Documents -> User Documents -> <name of the app> -> Authorization.
Click on the green + button, and set access to "All Users".
You have to do that for each and every app you want anonymous access to.
Keep in mind this is for a simple "sandbox" deployment. I don't speak for the proper way to do this with Server/Publisher, fancy enterprise deployments.
Not sure but i think we have to assign privileges to IQVS_SERVERNAME user to the document folders when using NTFS Authorization
The equivalent using NTFS Authorization would be setting the file permissions to everyone:
Still be aware of the huge potential security risk (to let access to anyone who is able to reach that folder)
See if this is still valid. It has been a couple of years since I used it.
I can't think of any reason why your method would not be valid, Bill.
Thank you very much for sharing this document. A very nice solution for this kind of deployments (Sandbox with no security at all)
