Section Access - Local group names

Hello,

I've successfully implemented section access via the section access tables in my applications.

But there's one remaining problem:

We have over 300 QVs Users which are splitted in local groups on the server.

If I put the Users seperatly in the Table it works:

ACCESSNTNAME%BUKRS
ADMINDOMAIN\User1DE

In this exampe User1 is a member in the local Group USERS_GERMANY.

If I add the line like in the following table it doesn't work:

ACCESSNTNAME%BUKRS
ADMINSERVERNAME\USERS_GERMANYDE

Do groups in section access only work if they are domain wide groups (for ex. DOMAIN\USERS_GERMANY)?

Thanks in advance.

Michael

Hi,

I think you have to specify users individually.

You can maintain the same in your database.

I use Domain groups successfully for Section Access and can see no reason why local groups should not work.

Re: Section Access - Local group names

Did you configure a Local Directory DSC in QMC? Otherwise Local Everything will fail to work...

Hi,

I tested a basic one on a local server and it worked.

Section Access;

LOAD * INLINE [

    ACCESS, NTNAME

    ADMIN, ADMINISTRATOR

    USER, NA\users_test

];

Section Application;

Try removing the %bukrs field and see if it works.
