Integrating Single Sign On in Qlikview – Part I


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.

Straight Table Pagination

Straight tables are one of the most commonly used objects in Qlik. I would say there are no reports without tables. Even if we try to avoid them, they are always there.

Tables don’t usually present a problem in our reports. However, when we work with big amount of data, tables don’t perform well and we need to start applying filters to make them smaller. No matter how big and dirty tables can get, users still want all of the detailed data in a table. No filters, no shortcuts. All of it.

This presents a big problem from Read More…

Bookmarks can either be  Private or Public.

Private bookmarks are created by users and can only be accessed or used by the creator.

Qlik Developers Group

Qlik Developer Group is an initiative of three Qlikview developers (Crowther, Michaelides, Vadithala) with the purpose of allowing developers exchange
new ideas and become closer to Qlik by providing constructive feedbak.
I am more than happy to be part of the first Qlik Developer Group meeting. The meeting took place in the Qlik office in London. We spent two hours discussing
different projects, including a great talk from a Qlik Lab member who shared information about their ongoing research.
