After having created our Entity and Group views, it is time to setup the Directory Service Connector in QMC.
Basically, Directory Service Connector keeps track of the users and it is needed for other management tasks that involve users, such as licence assignment.
In my example, we have all our users in a database. In order for Qlikview to access these users, we must setup a Configurable ODBC connection.
This series of posts are intended to help you integrate Single Sign On using an ODBC connection to a database. This database will contain the users used for authorization in Qlikview.
I will not be covering the authentication side of Single Sign On as it’s not related to Qlikview. However, information on how to create webtickets (necessary to implement single sign on) can be found in Qlikview Community.
What is Single Sign-On (SSO)?
Single Sign On is a user authentication process that allows said user to access different systems. By implementing SSO the user only enters one user and password. This will then authenticate the user against different system within an organization.
