Important concepts in the
The resources in the QMC have an associative structure. This makes it easy for you to navigate between the different resources in the QMC. Because of the associative structure of the
Custom properties and
Examples of applications for custom properties:
Grouping nodes by geography
Create a custom property called Countries and set the values to names of countries. Apply the custom property to your nodes and you can then create and deploy synchronization rules to countries instead of individual nodes.
Grouping streams by department
Create a custom property called Departments with values appropriate to your organization. Apply the custom property to your streams and you can then apply security rules to streams according to their Departments property instead of managing security rules for individual streams.
You can manage security rules for all data connections from the
You can select several resources from the overview. By doing this, you can edit or delete multiple resources at the same time. This makes your
Publish to stream
Content security is a critical aspect of setting up and managing your
By design, security rules are written to include, not exclude, users. Users who are not included in security rules are denied access. Therefore, security rules must be created to enable users to interact with
Tokens and access types
The License Enabling File (LEF) determines the number of tokens that you can allocate to different access types. An access type allows the users to access streams and apps within a
All user data is stored in the Qlik Sense Repository Service (QRS) database. You create user directory connectors in the QMC to be able to synchronize and retrieve the user data from a configured directory service. When a user logs in to Qlik Sense or the QMC, the user data is automatically retrieved. You can change the authentication method that handles the authentication of the
The creator of a resource (for example, an app or a stream) is by default the owner of the resource. You can change the ownership for resources in the
The following illustration gives an overview of the workflow of the resources.
The apps, sheets, and stories are created from the hub and published to a stream from the
Tasks are available for apps and user directory connectors. The reload task is used to fully reload the data in an app from the source. The user sync task is applied to a user directory connector to synchronize the users from a user directory. Triggers can execute tasks.
A stream security rule is applied to the stream and affects the access rights for the users.
The site license provides for a number of tokens that are allocated to access types. Users are given access to streams and apps on the hub by login access or user access. A security rule is applied to the login access to specify which users the login access is available for.
