Authorization with Windows User Groups

Dear QV community,

for authorization maintenance purposes I would like to be able to just assign Windows users to Windows User Groups and then the assign the Windows User Groups and not individual users to the respective applications.

I have additionally implemented a section access authorization, as for some countries there is a need to suppress certain sales offices.

Everything works fine, including the section access if I allocate the users ID in the QMC to the application; however, if I allocate the corresponding user group in the QMC instead, the section gets ignored.

I am sure there is a way to maintain this via user groups in the QMC whilst being able to apply section access at a user level, I just haven’t been able to figure this out.


I have attached the following screenshots to show you how I am currently handling it.

Screenshot 2: Section access with restriction at user level

Thanks for your help,

Re: Authorization with Windows User Groups

what version of QlikView Server are being used?

Also, if you instead try a very smal Section Access script with groups, does it work then?

Re: Authorization with Windows User Groups

The QV server version is:

11.20 SR4 (also 11.20.12129.0)

I have also tried small SA scripts but that shows the same behavior.

Thanks for the help.
