up to now the users of my apps have always accessed QlikView via their Browser, so I didn't have this problem - there is a security_group I had them all added to, only granting them RO access to the one subdirectory where the apps are. They all got a Document_CAL and that was that, they could access that app via the AccessPoint and use it.
For a novel app I have created, one of the core functionalities is reloading the script via the GUI. That doesn't work in the Browser (well, there is a way using EDX triggers and such, but I try to keep things simple). So
- the users need to have the client installed which I am in the process of having done by the IT_guys;
- They need full-access, but only to the (same) directory where the apps are AND to a subdirectory where the qvd files are (because
the app will store away the qvd files, again triggered by a button on the GUI).
=> I tried adding them to a group which grants them full access, but only to these two directories. That did not work, apparently because
they had no access rights to the root path of the server (the first segment after the \\).
=> So we decided to add them to the same group as myself and granting them full access to the entire QlikViewServer temporarily
<=> I want to switch them over in the group with fewer access rights as soon as the initial setup is done since I don't want to grant
the shopfloor_users more access rights tha n they absolutely need.
<=> It still doesn't work, so I guess I've done something wrong.
As I said, it's a long time since I had to unlock a Client since all the shopfloor_users up to now accessed QlikView in their Browser.
So I guess what I have in mind to do to unlock the Client is in some way incomplete. I would
- open the client
- hit the main_menu "File"
- select "Open on Server"
- type in that Edit_field the root_path (the first segment after the \\), without closing \
- click on "connect"
=> That's when we get a message that the security_settings deny access. So there is most probably something I'm doing wrong. Can you tell me what it is?
Thanks a lot!
P.S. Another colleague has now made it a bit further. It seems we must not type any \\, but simply the name of the server. But now we got a message "the Server has no USER CAL for this document" (she clicked on the very app that I gave her a licence for). She has only a Document_CAL. Could it be that that doesn't work?
