For qlikview desktop, I think (never tried, just an idea) you can go to Qlikview desktop application folder, hold CTRL SHIFT, right click on qv.exe and Run as a different user
For server you may setup internet explorer browser to always ask for username and password when you connect to access point
Was what you asked for?
For the AccessPoint, there is a very simple trick to test Section Access and alternate IDs:
- Publish your model on the server
- Obtain sufficient usernames/passwords to test all corners of SA behavior
- Start Desktop
- Select File->Open in Server...
- Before connecting, select option Alternate Identity on the right. Insert domainname\account in the input box.
- Click connect, enter a corresponding password and select your document from the list.
- Click Open
Yeah, I was going that route, but ran into corporate restrictions on the machine, I was so hopeful it would work for me. I can work around it, was just hoping it was kinder. In truth, I wish I could run it as no user, so the NTUSER would fail and it would ask me for a user/pass. that's really what I want to do, force the NT authentication to fail so i can input a user id
NT authentication will only fail if the current account cannot be found in the SA table.
As long as you're just testing security mechanisms (and correct reduction, I imagine) why don't you just disable the NTNAMES in your SA table for the time being? It's not that you are running any big risks if you switch them back on afterwards...
