    Folder Security

    Nilesh Tailor

      Hi,

       

      I am trying to setup Folder Security using AD Security and having an issue whereby I have setup the security on a folder to include the users that should have access.  I have removed all other users.  However, even with this setup users can still see the Qlikview Apps within the folder they should not have access to within the Access Point.  Has anybody seen this before?  Do I need to explicilty deny users/groups access to a folder?

       

      Thanks

          Nilesh, are you sure your server has NTFS setup as the authorization method?

           

          Also, have you removed the default users group from the folder security? have you made sure the security settings are being inherited by the files? Are you distributing the QVWs using publisher or manually setting authorization through the management console?

              Hi Daniel,

              Yes, the server has NTFS setup.

              After playing around with the problem it looks like when we publish the document using Publisher, it does not inherit the folder security and simply uses the Groups/Users we configure in the publisher task.  Is there a way of configuring in Publisher to use inherited security instead?
