    Custom directory ?

    Laura Sébille

      Hello everyone,

       

      We want to give access to the Access Point to some external users.  The network team is willing to make the url of access point accessible to them but they don't like the idea of creating them an AD account.

       

      Currently we have Small Business Edition but we are going to upgrade to Enterprise Edition. I have read that with the Enterprise Edition license, we could use a custom directory. But what is it exactly ? How do I use it ? how do I allocate cal ?

       

      All the information you have about that would be usefull.

       

      Thank you for your help

       

      Have a good day.

       

      Laura

          1. u can create/provide access to external users by listing on those users in custom directory.

           

          2. go to custom directory on QEMC and create entry for custom user

           

          3. allocate call to those user

           

          4. pass those details to ur custom user and ask him to use with same login details.

              Thank you Shiva

               

              And then, when you use custom directory, can use section access to do handle data security ?

               

              With NTNAME, I can use "Domain\laura", can I use with NTMAME  "custom\laura" as well ?

               

              Also, I think Publisher is mandatory to use this functionnality ?  And then with Publisher, do I automaticaly have the webpage :

               

              https://Myserver/qlikview/login.htm

               

              or do I have to parametrise ?

               

              Thank you

                Hi Shiva,

                 

                In a company, we have Small Business Edition (without Publisher). I created a custom user. But then when I go to access point, I must use my AD account to log in, (because I first need to log to the qv server).

                 

                How can I do to access to the access point with my custom account ?

                 

                In another company (where we already se custom directory), we have to go to another link to use custom account where we cannot use AD account. 

                 

                But I cannot find this other link to use custom account...

                 

                How can I do ?

                 

                Thank you

                And then, when you use custom directory, can use section access to do handle data security ? ---> hopes not possible,section access will apply at the time of application data loading but it's not possible with custom directory.

                 

                With NTNAME, I can use "Domain\laura", can I use with NTMAME  "custom\laura" as well ? ---> same as above

                 

                Also, I think Publisher is mandatory to use this functionnality ? ---u mean for CD--- NO NEED,

                 

                And then with Publisher, do I automaticaly have the webpage : ---->SAME WEB PAGE

                    As an aside, if the QV Web Server is on a LAN, the I would create second QV Web Server in the DMZ.  Both of them being serviced by the single (or more if you cluster) QlikView server[s] on the LAN.

                     

                    Otherwise a direct link from the Internet going straight through to a LAN is security risk.
