What exactly does NTDOMAINSID and NTSID fields do in Section Access please?

Hello,

Can anybody please explain to me what exactly does the NTDOMAINSID and NTSID fields do in Section Access please?

In help it says:

NTDOMAINSIDA field that should contain a string corresponding to a Windows NT Domain SID.
Example: S-1-5-21-125976590-4672381061092489882
QlikView will fetch the logon information from the OS and compare it to the value in this field.
NTSIDA field that should contain a Windows NT SID.
Example: S-15-21-125976590-467238106-1092489882-1378
QlikView will fetch the logon information from the OS and compare it to the value in this field.

I still have no idea what it means by Windows NT Domain SID or Windows NT SID?

In practical terms why would a user want to use these two fields? What does it relate to for a non-technical user / non-security technical person?

If you don't know what they mean, don't use them
