    Using security groups with both section access and AccessPoint

    Robin Cushman

      Hello all,


      I’m working on a dashboard that has security that’s a little more complex than what I’ve worked on before. 

       

      ·        I need to provide the Security_Group_Admins security group with access to the QVW

      ·        I need to provide both the Security_Group_Admins AND the Security_Group_Users security groups with viewing privileges in AccessPoint.

      ·        There is  no data reduction needed for the dashboard/users


      My section access code looks like the following:

      Section Access;
      load * inline [
              ACCESS, %FLAG_ADMIN, NTNAME, %SECROLE, %SECGEO
              ADMIN, Y, BIPUBLISHER

              ADMIN, Y, SVC_S_BIPUBLISHER

              ADMIN, Y, T_DEVELOPER
              ADMIN, Y, SECURITY_GROUP_ADMINS
              USER, N, SECURITY_GROUP_USERS]
      ;


      In the QMC, when I set up a task, I'm including both the Security_Group_Admins AND the Security_Group_Users as Named Users, on the Distribute tab. 


      Upon testing, someone in the Security_Group_Users is not able to see the dashboard in AccessPoint.  I am "T_DEVELOPER" above, and I can see the dashboard in AccessPoint, as well as open the QVW file.  What is the proper way to set up both section access and the server so that the groups listed above have permission to do the right things (as noted above)?


      Thanks very much!
