Discussion Board for collaboration on QlikView Publisher.
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.
Man that work like wonder.. you saved me !!
Hi Chester Liu
That works for DMS but for NTFS what should we do?
This will work unless you have Small Business Edition Server (Due to DMS authorization). I wonder if this also works in NTFS
You mean NTLM? Sorry I don't know. Try customer support.
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)
Thank you Bill!!
