Q&A - Extending the Power of Qlik Sense with Rules
Q: Is it possible to hide Reload Now but keep Create new reload task function? Both actions have only one Resource filter - ReloadTasks_* .
A: No, this is not possible. Reload Now just is the right to create a reload task. The downside to the reload now functionality is that is created a manually triggered task which can clutter things up.
Q: is there a way to control field access via rules?
A: No, Security Rules won’t solve that scenario. The OMIT section access field would be the way to accomplish this: https://help.qlik.com/en-US/sense/April2018/Subsystems/Hub/Content/Scripting/Security/manage-security-with-section-access.htm
Q: Is it poosible to create a rule to give access to an app that drives a mashup, yet not see the app in a stream?
A: Sure. This would be the style of approach: https://community.qlik.com/thread/292889
Q: Hi, is it possible to just show Data Model Viewer? And if there is omit column applied, would it be hidden in the model viewer? Thanks.
A: No, this is not possible. Both the Data Model Viewer and Data Load Editor present when the user has App update rights.
Q: You mentioned "sub stream" earlier. What's a sub stream?
A: There isn’t a single term for this, it’s just what I call it. But the concept is that there are exclusions in the Stream rule whereby providing a user access to a stream does not necessarily provide access to all apps in that stream. Like the Restricted exclusion section of the demo.
