Hide Published Apps in Hub with Access Denied

Unlike Qlikview, Qlik Sense still displays published applications to users who cannot open them due to section access security.

It would be preferable to not display these applications in the Hub.

Unpublished applications should still be visible to the owner when access is denied.

Section access currently is used for data reduction. For most of our users, the apps co-exist in streams where some apps apply to a user, and others don't. There is a convoluted way to set this up from the server-side using the configuration method but makes way more sense to have this function baked into section access itself or to have a stream level section access so rather than reducing data, we can reduce the number of apps available for the user to interact with.

Hi @Peter_Adams thank you for sharing the idea with us. This is actually something which we do have listed on our backlog improvement road map. It's not decided yet if we do it and how but I'll update the idea as soon as I know which will be early next year.

Best regards,

Thomas

Any update on this Idea?

 

Also, @Peter_Adams can you elaborate more on the idea?

 

Do you mean that if a user doesn't have access to an app based on the section access, the app shouldn't be visible to the user? 

If this is possible, that will be great.

PLEASE MAKE THIS A THING! I support six enterprise clients and most of them want this as a feature. having to do app by app security or make  ton of streams to hide apps is nuts.
