Disable Export to Excel - Qlik Sense SaaS

Hi All,

I am seeking some guidance on how to disable content downloading, specifically to Excel from an app. Can be either a table or a chart.

Thanks,

Wynand

Hi @wcilliers, thank you for the post! Unfortunately, it's not possible at the moment to set a security rule like that. In any case, what are you asking for is part of our road map for custom roles 😊

If the issue is solved please mark the answer with Accept as Solution.

Is there an estimated date on when these custom roles will be available to limit the ability export?  For obvious security reasons, we cannot launch SaaS and shut down our on prem instance until this is available.

Hello,

 

Is there an estimate on when the Custom Roles functionality will be published to Qlik Sense SaaS?

 

Is there any way to limit context menu access from a Data Load Editor script?

Just adding a +1 to this feature suggestion.

Being able to restrict download is going to be essential for a large number of use cases.

+1   I need this functionality.  It's preventing our migration to Qlik SaaS.

Hi @wkasinak 

Recently a new option appeared in one of my tenants, when you allocate users to streams there is a Restricted View option as well as View. I believe that this prevents export.

I've not had a chance to test it fully, but this may be the functionality that you have been waiting for.

The client I wanted it for four weeks ago has since changed their mind, so I don't need to restrict downloads for them.

Hope that is useful.

Hi,

I tested this and it's not quite what I expected. Yes it prevents the user from downloading data to Excel but the user can still download data as an image or PDF. It also prevents the user from story telling which I find odd.
