In Qlik Sense QMC, I will go to the Security Rules section and add a new rule. I will probably only want to add Read and maybe Update but not allow Delete for this rule. The rule will apply to QMC only.
The Resources that I will list here can be either specific names of objects or they will be wildcards. In this example, my list of Resources are:
QmcSection_Task - the access to the Task section of QMC
ReloadTask_1899c8cb-3073-4362-9f98-a36dee86dcc8 - Access to a specific task
App_3a1be6fa-99b4-422c-94a8-de031c94a7f3 - Access to a specific application
I could give access to ReloadTask_* and App_* to give the user or group access to all tasks and all apps.
In the access, I can assign to a specific set of users or I can specify a name of a role. This role does not have to exist anywhere else - this is you creating it!
So, how do I find out the Guid of a particular Task or App? Well, I could query the database directly for the information (see my previous blog entry - Connect to your Qlik Sense repository). Alternatively, I can use the web browser's developer tools to help:
If I right-click on a Task or App in their respective lists, I can select "Inspect Element" from the menu (IE11 and Chrome - other browsers may vary). The Span that contains the row will have an element that contains the Guid:
Just copy and paste!
