Re: DOC CAL

Hi Villyee,

     OK now let me explain with example.

     Say I have two Applications 1. Sales and 2. Inventory.

     Now I have 3 Users, Say User1, User2 and User3.

     The Authorization is as follows.

     User1 -> only Sales

     User2 -> only Inventory

     User3 -> Both.

     Now what I will do first is Assign the Document CAL's to the users and document.

     What will happen in this scenario is All users will see all applications, but when they click on the application, the application will open only if that user has proper license.

     Now requirement is User should see the application which they are authorized to.

     Due to the Windows Security, "Users" group will be included in the security of the file.

     What needs to be done is, remove the Users Group from security. And Add the users who are authorized to see the application.

     So in our example

   

     1. Sales application will have User1 and User3 included in security Tab.

     2. Inventory application will have User2 and User3 included security Tab.

     So User1 will see only Sales application, User2 will only Inventory and User3 will see both applications.

Re: DOC CAL

Hi,

it is strange that your user is able to access an app that he/she does not actually have a license for - should be impossible.

Anyway - look up the Section_Access. You can give ADMIN or USER access to an app to specific users, e.g. using their NTNAME (PC logon) - other persons that you haven't specified there will not be able to open the app, although they might have a license for it.

Re: DOC CAL

Hi,

I think you don't have publisher Licence with you.

If you have named cal, He can access it.

Is it the case?

Do you have publisher with you?

Re: DOC CAL


Hi Villyee,

yes, it is possible. I couldn't find it right now, but there is a checkbox somewhere in the QMC - or maybe in the document_properties - to "restrict visibility based on Section_Access". That means that persons who you haven't specified in your SA to have access to the document cannot see it on AccessPoint.

Re: DOC CAL

Yes, I havn't publisher.

Re: DOC CAL

Ok in this case you have to remove access from QlikView file itself as you do with NTFS file sharing.

Go to QlikView Document Properties --> Security --> Remove that user and everyone from the app you want to remove access from.
