    QMC functionality with membership in machine group 'Administrators','QlikView Administrators'

    Evan Kurowski

      Hello All,


      Can anyone illustrate any differences in QMC functionality that arise from the following group configurations?

      • The user is a member of the QMC machine's local groups 'Administrators', 'QlikView Administrators'
      • The user is a member only of the machine local group 'QlikView Administrators'
      • What group membership's are necessary to designate a user as a 'Document Administrator' on the QMC?

       

      We have all 3 combination here, and I would appreciate confirmation of how to expect each of these 3 to behave in terms of capabilities.  Thanks for any assistance.

          Evan, you should have Qlikview Document Administrator Group in your groups for 'Document Administrator' on the QMC?

           

          If user belongs to machine Administrators, the user can access everything in the machine include all QlikView components.

              This is helpful Srikanth, thank you.  so here are the permissions scenarios (and situation 3 is what I'd like confirmation on):

               

               

              1. Only 'Administrators'
                Cannot get at QMC until they are added to the group 'QlikView Administrators' but as admin of the machine, they have capability to add themselves to 'QlikView Administrators'.
              2. 'Administrators' + 'QlikView Administrators'
                Full access to the machine + all QMC functionality
              3. Only 'QlikView Administrators'
                ???
              4. Only 'QlikView Document Administrator'
                Can be designated a Document administrator, and allowed to access a limited set of QMC features limited to the 'Documents' & 'Status' tabs of the QMC
