Hi, no.

Re: PGO as xml security problem

I think rather not. The xml are only copies in a readable format but they won't be used from the server to control anything. And the file-access to these xml should be of course restricted to those people which are responsible for the qv server.

Hi Marcus,

Thanks for the reply. I want to use this xml in my application. Which one is the best option for xml file-access restriction ?

Re: PGO as xml security problem

What do you mean with using in your application - you want to read the xml within a qlikview app?

Hi Marcus,

Yes I want to use the CAL as  xml file in  qlikview application. So before converting pgo to xml  I need to consider about the information security since it is in readable format.

Thanks&Regards,

Lokeshwari

Re: PGO as xml security problem

Those informations serve only administrative purposes - therefore you could put those app into a special folder where only a few people get access to. And you could additionally use Section Access.
