Users are imported from user directories. Once imported, you can manage user access:

  • Use the security rules editor to create rules, based on user IDs and names, to provide access to Qlik Sense.
  • Assign QMC administrative roles. The roles need to be defined in the security rules page.
Tip noteYou can edit users that are associated with a stream or data connection. Select the stream or data connection from the Streams overview or Data Connections overview, and click User access under Associated items. Select the user and click Edit user.

The Users overview lists all the available users. The following table presents the available fields and buttons. By default, only some of the fields are displayed. You can use the column selector (Table) to add fields.
