v11SR2 Publisher not working w/ Section Access

Installed Server/Publisher on a new box.

Created a basic SectionAccess app to test Data Reduction based on guide

Reload is successful.

When I test the app with impersonation in Developer,it works fine. Copy paste the app in the Published apps folder and impersonate and it reduces data as expected for restricted users.

Tried the same with a Distribution job and the app denies access to the same restricted user.

Has anyone facced this issue before?

Hi,

Did you add the NTNAME account running the QlikView services as ADMIN in your section access table, with no value (not even "*") in the reduction field specified?

Hope that helps.

ADMIN account has *. V9 this works flawlessly. Same server settings for services and setup. V11 distribution does not work.

Thanks.

Hi Amir,

Then, unless all values are listed in the section access table within the reduction field, set it to a blank value rather than the "*". Make sure the NTNAME account in the form DOMAIN\ACCOUNT has all permissions to open the document and see all rows with the setup mentioned above.

Hope that helps.

No changes there. Reading from local text files as datasource. The funny part is, copy paste the reloaded app to the published directory, it works fine, no matter the filename. Apply distribution job and it doesn’t work anymore.

Thanks.

Re: v11SR2 Publisher not working w/ Section Access

Hi Amir,

I still don't know how your section access looks like, and if you are setting the account name in the NTNAME field, and whether or not you are specifying the username in the section access part of the task.

Are you using Publisher? If so, are you authorizing the users in the task? Are you looping and reducing the file or just reloading with section access?

It's difficult to say without further elaboration. Distribution with section access works just fine with version 11 (it had some issues in the ealiest releases of v11, but the current one works all right).

Hope that helps.

Re: v11SR2 Publisher not working w/ Section Access

To make matters simpler, I created an app from scratch with nothing but section access, and the stores for table. Applied reload, tested in Desktop, worked fine. Copy paste to the published folder, works fine. Apply distribution job and the restricted user with access = USER and NTNAME AS Domain\Username, the app does not permit access to the document.

This is the most basic app with section access we even go through in QV Developer class.

Does the document have licenses available assigned to users?

We met exactly the same problem.

After the distribution task, users can't open the document !

Best regards
