App security

The major components of the Qlik Sense app security are:

  • Access control system: The access control system grants users access to the resources in Qlik Sense.
  • Data reduction: The data reduction functionality is based on the concept of section access, which is a way to dynamically change which data a user can view. This makes it possible to build apps that can be used by many users, but with different data sets that are dynamically created based on user information. The reduction of data is performed by the Qlik Sense Engine Service (QES).

Using these components, the resources and data (that is, the content) consumed by the Qlik Sense users can be secured.
