What I mean is, do you just have one folder with overall access to all users and then application access controlled by section access, Or do you set any specific security to different users within different folders of your environment?
i.e Folder A for team A, Folder B for team B
Ties into the first question really, just trying to get some context around your environment setup, in case the issue is outside of QV and around folder access changing.
Well we just have a couple of different folders like "daily", "non-daily", "specials", "admin", and then there is qvw-documents in each.
We have no section access settings.
Users are authorized to different applications via QMC->Documents->Authorization
"Always" access and "Named users" user type
System->Setup->Security as below:
I was able to pinpoint the cause.
I saw that there were always the same documents that were "disappearing" and started to compare how the user names (which actually mostly are Ldap group names) were written in the QMC->Documents->Authorization setting.
Let's say we have a ldap group named ldap-qvgroup1 with the GroupDN: "CN=ldap-qvgroup1, OU=xyz, DC=example, DC=com"
For the disappearing documents we had written:
"ldap-qvgroup1" as "User name"
Changing that to
"example\ldap-qvgroup1" fixed the problem.
Our IT department confirms that they did a change in the ldap configuration two days ago (just when our problems started) changing the "scope of the groups (from global to domain local)"
