Files

By default, QlikView Publisher Repository (QVPR) is a set of XML files. These files are backed up as .zip files in %ProgramData%\QlikTech\ManagementService\QVPR\Backups.

Security Groups

When installing QlikView Server/Publisher, a couple of security groups are created.

The QlikView Server/Publisher services must run under an account that is member of the security group QlikView Administrators. Users connecting to QMC must be part of this group. Anyone connecting to a remote service must also be member of QlikView Administrators.

The users connecting through the API must be members of the QlikView Management API security group. The group is not created during the installation and has to be added (and populated, for example, with the members of the QlikView Administrators group) manually. A membership in this group is required to import tasks from another QlikView Server/Publisher.

The QlikView EDX security group is not created during the installation and has to be added (and populated) manually in order for users to run EDX tasks.

Document Administrators

To delegate the responsibility of creating tasks to people not part of the QlikView Administrators group, users can be appointed document administrators. The document administrators are only allowed to access the tabs in QMC that are related to either user documents or source documents.

Note: The use of document administrators requires a QlikView Publisher license.

For more information on how to appoint document administrators, see the QMC online help.
