    custom users management

    Tjeerd Wieberdink

      Dear Forum,

       

      My client wants to use the custom users directory list in order to allow users outside the network to my clients qv documents. I know this is only available in DMS mode. However, when i try to manage this list, i notice that i have to enter the users 1 by 1. This list is based on the xml CustomDirectoryData.xml. Now I have to enter 300 users one by one into this tool. I think there must be a better way to manage and maintain this list. One key issue for us is to be able to import a massive amount of user information from xls to this xml. Does anyone have a good idea on how to deal with this?

       

      Regards,

          Hi Tjeerd,

           

          I don't know too much about DMS mode and such, but from my understanding, your current requirement is taking a lot of customer_data from an xls and making it into valid xml, no?

          Well, in my experience, that can be done using some string_functions to enrich the data you actually have in your xls with the necessary tags and such so that it fits your xml_file - doable in a small QlikView_app for ex.

              Thanks, that sounds like a good idea. However then i still have 1 issue. The passwords that have been inputted in the management console are encrypted in the xml. My excel passwords are not encrypted. Will this give a security issue?

              If it does, how will i be able to encrypt those passwords in excel?

              Hi,

               

              Let me change my answer to you. It has been a long day.

               

              Can you setup the users in the local directory on the server? If so you can use a bat file to up load the users.

               

              net user User9 user9 /add /expires:never /passwordchg:no

              in the above the User9 is the user and user9 is password.
