Editing security rules

You can edit a security rule that you have update rights to. If you edit a default rule, that is, a rule that is supplied with Qlik Sense, the rule type definition changes from Default to Custom. Keep in mind that changing a default rule, or adding a new rule that affects the default rules, may cause unexpected behavior in Qlik Sense. Use the rule preview feature to check rule behavior before implementing changes to default rules. Remember that only read only and default rules are automatically updated when you upgrade to a new Qlik Sense version.

Information noteIt is not recommended to create rules that allow users to edit published apps in streams.
Tip noteSome resource types, such as streams and data connections, provide the possibility to edit and create associated rules directly, without requiring access to the security rules section.
  1. Open the QMC: https://<QPS server name>/qmc

  2. Select Security rules on the QMC start page or from the Start Arrow down drop-down menu.
  3. Select the rule you want to edit.

  4. Click Edit in the action bar.

    A split page is displayed, with the editing pane to the left (with all the properties) and the audit page to the right.

  5. Tip noteIn the Basic section, next to the Resource filter text box, you can click the arrow to open a popover where you can select multiple resources for the filter.
  6. Click Preview to view the access rights of your rule in the currently defined audit grid.

  7. Click Apply to save the edited rule.

    Successfully updated is displayed at the bottom of the page.

Information noteUpdates to the security rules will not immediately take effect in a client if the client has more than one tab open. The user must then log out and log in again. When only one tab is open, it is sufficient to do a refresh.
