    Qlik Sense security rules -- Cannot hide edit button/duplicate sheet/create sheet options in published app

    Ryan Howell

      I am having some issues using security rules to hide the edit button/duplicate sheet/create new sheet options in a published app for end users. I have seen this webinar --> SenseSecurityRules.mp4 - Google Drive that shows that the edit button and create sheet options can indeed be hidden. Is this still possible, or could it only be done in an older release? I have tried adding a line to CreateAppObjectsPublishedApp that checks the user directory, "and user.UserDirectory != "XYZDirectory"  and I have tried simply disabling the rule all together. In either case, the end users can still see the edit button/duplicate sheet/create new sheet options, and can utilize all three. However, upon refresh of the page, if a sheet was added or duplicated, it will be gone. The same goes for bookmarks and stories, as they are also app objects (I know that I could use logic to exclude these). I saw another very recent thread where someone was having this exact issue --> https://community.qlik.com/thread/256168 -- This user suggests that this is the expected behavior of the rule being disabled (explicitly or via logic). Can anyone shed some light on this for me? Is it no longer possible to hide the aforementioned options in 3.2 SR2? Is duplicating a sheet not considered a create option/is it a read? I also implemented the example from Qlik --> https://help.qlik.com/en-US/sense/1.1/Subsystems/ManagementConsole/Content/ServerUserGuide/SUG_ConfiguringSecurity_Envir…

       

      Thanks!
