How to read local groups in QlikView for Section Access
I have created several local groups on the QlikView server (Windows groups). Depending on the name of the group, the access should be restricted. But how can I read the local groups including the users in that group in QlikView? I have managed to read the LDAP-groups (same construction), but can't find a way to read the local groups. We need to use local groups instead of Active Directory network groups because of changing the infrastructure by our IT department.
The local group is called "QlikView Report 1X" or "QlikView Report 2-". Users in the group ending with 1X need to have other access to the data (limited) and objects/tabs in the dashboard than the users in the group ending with 2-. So I need to know in what local group the user that opens the app, but for the admins, I need to read all the groups (they are dynamic so an inline load doesn't fit), so I can grant access to all the data and objects/tabs in the app.
Re: How to read local groups in QlikView for Section Access
Sorry for the late respons - was on vacation. But this is not what I meant. With this option I have to define all the groups (about 50 and they change regularly) in the section access part in the script. I'm trying to avoid that.
My prefered solution would be: - define the local groups on the server (Windows);
- use a script to collect all the defined groups;
- in this script the right access will be defined based on the naming convention;
> this will be the section access table
- read the users local group and get the specific access
Step 1 is no problem; step 2 is the problem. I've managed to get this working with Active Directory groups (LDAP), but can't get it for local groups.
