Removing/Deleting the item in the Authorization tab will not poublish a document or make it visible. On the contrary, the document will be unpublished for the users your remove/delete.
As to your original question: whether or not a particular user is allowed to view/open a particular document in the AccessPoint is a complex decision made by the QlikView server that depends on a number of factors:
- Is the document distributed at all?
- Is the document published to this user by the task or through a setting in the Authorizations tab (DMS mode)?
- Does Section Access allow entry to this user?
- If data reduction is enabled, does the data model contain any data after being reduced for this user?
- Does the user have a license?
You see, availability and accessibility depend on both static and dynamic factors. There is no single file or configuration switch that determlines whether a particular user is allowed entry or not.
However, you can easily simulate this QlikView Server process up to a certain level by opening QMC->Users, entering a user name, clicking the magnifying glass icon, selecting the user in the list and navigating to the Documents tab. There you'll find a list of all documents that are available to this user.
Thanks for the reply Peter.
My question is a rather simplier one I guess... where is the setting hosted/stored that reflects value in the Users Authorized to Access Document setting > User Type (All Authenticated Users, All Users, Named Users)? I need this info in order to create the app to show this info for all our QVWs...
Thanks again, and I hope the above makes my query a bit clearer!
That should well be in the Meta file of each document. That's were all characteristics (including to whom it is published and available) of a particular published document are stored.
Note that these settings are not typically manipulated in the QMC, but are most often overridden by the task that reloads and distributes your document.
