    ODBC Connection - You do not have access to the data source

      I'm using an ODBC connection successfully with QlikSense Desktop.

       

      However, I've recently set up a QlikSense server. I'm attempting to connect to the same source, but I am getting the error message "You do not have access to the data source".

       

      To confirm, I am using the system DSN and 64-bit version of the connector. Any help would be appreciated.

          Have you uploaded the QVF app using the ODBC connector via Import in the QMC? I so, you should see the Data Connection under the Data Connections section in the QMC.

           

          You can also manually add the Data Connection before creating any app so users would be able to use it when creating apps.

           

          But obviously, for both of these methods, you need to create the ODBC in the Qlik Sense server.

            Hi,

            I also have this error occurring when trying to connect to Teradata 15 from the Qlik Sense platform. Ihave not tried this from Qlik Sense Desktop as I don't have a 64-bit client machine available.

            Steps I have taken are:

            1. configured both 32 and 64 bit ODBC connections

            - with the required username and password. This is not NT windows based (i,e not sourced from Active Directory)

            2. tested that the Teradata SQL Assistant connects using the 32 bit version ODBC connection.

            3. tried to create a new data connection from within the Create New Connection (ODBC) dialogue window

            - tried creating both 32 and 64 bit ODBC connections.

            - tried including the username and password, and without including

            Thanks,

            Jonathan

                Sent a solution from Qlik. Need to disable the standard mode on the QMC > Engines > Central Engine > Edit > Advanced (see Standard mode checkbox at the bottom - untick and restart Engines service).

                This means however that you are not able to restrict access to the Data source you create to only some of the users, which makes it a potentially unworkable solution.

                  Good Morning,

                  I got a similar problem with the last version of qlik sense server enterprise.

                  I installed on my win7 64bit client the oracle instant client odbc connector, last or older releases,and made the odbc connections. From qlik sense client worked all perfectly.

                  So now we're in the time evaluation period of the server, and the automatic connection from the server to the odbc oracle db  is very important to decide if buy or not it.

                  I made the same procedure (I followed to configure my client) to install the odbc on w2k12 std 64bit english server, but when I open the qlik sense app management on the server, the odbc connections are blank and I cannot go on when I put into the login password and service name manually (for both connections 32 and 64bit, I installaed odbc 64bit) . I uncheck the standard mode as told in the past post here, but I cannot see the odbc connections again. I uninstall the oracle instant client and relative settings, and I install the qlik odbc package on the server, I made again the odbc connections using qlik drivers, but in the server again I cannot see the list of possibly odbc connections. Could be a problem of security permissions? Where I can manage it?

                   

                  Thanks
