There is an issue, sometimes, with the management console not saving these selections. I have done this workaround to make it anonymous:
1) start >run> regedit goto My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\QlikTech\QlikViewServer\Settings 7
2a) Set the AuthenticationLevel string value to 0.
2b) If the AuthenticationLevel String Value does not exist create a string value name it AuthenticationLevel and set it to 0.
3) Now go to start >run >services.msc and restart the QlikView Management Service service.
-This will set the Security tab for clients to Always Anonymous, located in your Q(E)MC >System >Setup >Qlikview Servers > click your QVS server and go to the Security tab under Authentication >Clients.
4) Next in the Q(E)MC >System >Setup >Qlikview Web Services section click on your QVWS >AccessPoint tab and for Authentication set it to Never and click Apply (twice). This should do the trick, let me know if this fixes or at least gets you any closer.
I tried your solution. I found that this registry key exists. I changed the value to 0, after a restart of the qlikview management service and a refresh of the regedit screen, the value immediately changed back to 2 again I didn't do anything else in between these 2 steps (the same for value 1 instead of 0). It looks like i simply can't choose anonymous for some reason?
I was thinking is there a link with the dynamic user cal addition perhaps?
Another thing i noticed was that there is no "Auth URL" configured on my blackberry app.
Ok I think I know what the issue is here. Do you have either of these as a Server License type:
Small Business Edition
QlikView Server Small Business Edition (SBE) is available for customers
looking for a QlikView Server specifically designed to support a smaller
QlikView Server for Community
QlikView Server for Community (Q4C) is available for customers looking
for a QlikView Server with a limited number of documents and a limited
number of known users.
This would explain why you can't change to anonymous. In this case you will have to use some form of security which is explained more in Part IV:QLikView Server, section 16.2 of the QlikView Server Reference Manual.
Hope this helps.
I have the same problem in java mobile. I have tried your solution on enterprise Qlikview server 8.5 . but this "null" error changed to no user access even I set the authentication method to anonymous. what is the config parameters for Auth Url regarding the one of the java mobile documentation.??
If authorization is enabled in the setup screen the mobile client will ask for username and password. It
will then try to get a ticket from the url set up in the config parameters. For this to work the server must
be configured to accept basic Http authentication.
