Troubleshooting - Designing access control

This section describes problems that can occur when designing access control in the QMC.

I cannot create a security rule for my user directory connector

Possible cause  

You are trying to use the user directory connector's value for Name in the security rule.

Proposed action  

You must use the user directory connector's value for User directory in the security rule.

I suspect that a user can access a stream that should not be accessible

Possible cause  

One or more security rules include access rights for the user who is requesting access.

Proposed action  

Make the following audit query to find out which streams the user can access. Disable or edit the security rules, if necessary.

The QMC audit screen. The User search filter bar is pulled up.

App access problems related to security rules

Badly designed custom security rules can result in the following problems:

  • Users cannot open apps that they should be able to open.

  • Users can open apps that they should not be able to open.

Possible cause  

One or more custom security rules are not working as they should resulting in excessive permissions or lack of permissions.

Proposed action  

Follow the methods described here: Troubleshooting Qlik Sense Enterprise Security Rules
