Using mounted folders and distribution task

Hi Qlik'ers!

This should be a simple and common situation... but for some reason I can't get it to work as I expected.

I am trying to rearrange the security setup for a client so that they can set the security of folders on the QlikView server and then use distribution tasks to publish apps to these folders in Accesspoint and respect the security.

what I have done is:

- Mount a folder on the server called 'Team 1'

- Give NTFS permissions to the QlikView Service account and the AD group of users 'Team 1' (read only)

- Create a distribution task for a qvw to publish to this mounted folder to 'AllAuthenticated Users'

The qvw is created in the mounted folder ok, but I still seem to be able to see the application in AP, even though I am not a member of 'Team 1'...

Any ideas / suggestions as to what is going wrong?

One downside of this approach is that you can't seem to have hierarchies of folders as you get duplications in the publishing... so any better ideas much appreciated...

Thanks!

Re: Using mounted folders and distribution task

Hi Julian,

The only way to make it work this way is to setup your system for anonymous access. However, that isn't a good idea. When a document is published it doesn't inherit the file permission from the OS.

You will need to add the groups when you do the distribution.

Re: Using mounted folders and distribution task

Hi,

Do you have publisher with you?

I would prefer to add individual users or group instead of all authenticated users.

Re: Using mounted folders and distribution task

Yes, I'm using publisher. I didn't want to have to add user groups for each distribution task... but I guess if that is the only way to make it work...

Re: Using mounted folders and distribution task

HI,

If you have publisher then you security will be handel by publisher itself.

All you have to do is specify users or groups instead of all authenticated users.
