On the Advanced tab, the QlikView Distribution Service (QDS) handling of the QlikView engine (QVB.exe) can be managed.
When section access is defined in the documents, it may be necessary to configure a specific entry for the QDS to avoid that it interfere with the work of the task. By default, the QDS will apply the section access associated to the Windows user under which the service run. This may be overridden at each task. If a default override is preferable, it can be defined by configuring the login credentials in the following text boxes:
To configure the user name, enter the desired credentials in this text box.
To configure the password, enter the desired credentials in this text box.
