QV Server, WebTickets. Group binding does not work

Hi! I try to setup QV Server work with DMS + Configurable ODBC + WebTickets combination.

QV Server  configured and everything fine but access with user groups not working...

Here is my "user table" specification:

CREATE TABLE [dbo].[tbl_A_qvUser](

    [entityid] [int] IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,

    [name] [nvarchar](max) NOT NULL,

    [email] [nvarchar](max) NULL,

    [descr] [nvarchar](max) NULL,

    [password] [nvarchar](max) NOT NULL,



    [entityid] ASC



Here is my "group table" specification:

CREATE TABLE [dbo].[tbl_A_qvGroupUser](

    [groupid] [int] NOT NULL,

    [memberid] [int] NOT NULL


The names of the groups wound up as users in the table tbl_A_qvUser. Table tbl_A_qvGroupUser contains only links between users and groups.

ODBC Configuration

I checked the User Management page. Users appear from an ODBC connection.

Then I set up access to the document for the groups from tbl_A_qvUser.

Then when i go to AccessPoint (Using a user from a group Аналитики) i don't find document moves database.

Re: QV Server, WebTickets. Group binding does not work

when requesting a ticket I'm assuming you are using SQL\burobin as the user name in the ticket request.  Are you using IIS or QlikView Web server for your ticketing mechanism?

This behavior is odd.  It's going to come down to a very small thing either in the web ticket code, request, or something really obscure.

Please grab this file (Dropbox - webticketsample.aspx) and place it onto your server.  You will have to make some minor modifications to the getwebticket server url, but then you can run this code (which is very similar to yours) without authentication.  In this page, QlikView assumes authentication has already taken place.

To using web ticketing you will have to write your own authentication login page. You will have request the ticket from QVS for the user and then past that ticket back to QVS in an URL. Qlik does not do any authentication that is outside of Qlik.

Thank You Bill!

I did alternate the sign-in page AccessPoint and users are authenticated through it (With this there is no problem). Here is the source code.

Re: QV Server, WebTickets. Group binding does not work

Hi Lgor,

I don't see your reply here, but I am not sure what you are authenticating against. Our web pages uses Windows authentication and that is what is passed to QVS. If you are not going to use Windows you have to provide QVS with either a Web Ticket or a Header. The connecter you applied above is only used to assign authorization to the users to see the document. QVS will check that once it receives a Web ticket or the header information.

Re: QV Server, WebTickets. Group binding does not work


Sorry the previous message with source code of authorization page has not yet been checked by a moderator... We use our own page to access AccessPoint using WebTicket. This is no problem. The users access through it. The problem only occurs in the distribution of rights on the documents.

There may be a problem I do not understand the information which sends the page in the <GroupList> XML in the body of the request? Now it's empty.

Re: QV Server, WebTickets. Group binding does not work


One question about your web ticket code:

Are you passing the group in the web ticket request instead of the userid?  If you are sending the userid via web ticket, the group param in the web ticket is not necessary.  When the user is passed through, Qlik will perform group resolution against the directory service connection.

As far as your ODBC, you are correct that the group name needs to be included in the user table as well and then the group table acts as a lookup where groupID==the id for the group in the user table and the memberid==the id for the user.

Can you see that the user you are logging in as is in fact a member of that group by running a sql query to check the members for the groupID?

Re: QV Server, WebTickets. Group binding does not work

I checked groups binding with this query

select *

from tbl_A_qvGroupUser groupsBind

     inner join tbl_A_qvUser groups on (groups.entityid = groupsBind.groupid)and

                                       (groups.isGroup = 1)

     inner join tbl_A_qvUser users on (users.entityid = groupsBind.memberid)and

                                       (users.isGroup <> 1)

Re: QV Server, WebTickets. Group binding does not work

ok, if I'm looking at this correctly, you have your tbl_A_qvGroupUser table returning all of this information.  One thing that is important in the creation of the user and groups table is that they do not have any additional columns in them then the required columns when they are read by the DSC.  I realize you are showing me the contents of what I asked, but I also want to make sure the tables read by the DSC are formatted properly.

For example, the user table needs to be configured like this:

and the groups table needs to look like this:

This is all that can be in the tables.  Now I think you have your groups table created properly, but I don't know if you have added the groups (see 4 and 5 in the entity table) to the users table.

Fields like your isGroup and Password could be throwing things off if those fields exist in the user and groups table respectively.

Re: QV Server, WebTickets. Group binding does not work


I changed table tbl_A_qvUser to this

This is my table tbl_A_qvGroupUser

Then i deleted all data from tables tbl_A_qvUser and tbl_A_qvUserGroup.

Then I created 2 entries in the table tbl_A_qvUser and 1 entry in table tbl_A_qvUserGroup.

I changed DSP Settings (Entity name field)

I checked data

chenged options in "documents"

Then I went to the login page
