Depending on client needs, folder structure within Access
Point can vary. Our test server has the following structure:
Root folder should be pointed to QlikView \Root. Root folder
does not have any user documents and you should leave this one empty (you will
find system files with a .pgo extension get created in here).
There are time when you need to provide a user with two
versions of the same document. For example one production document that was
already approved for analytics and an updated document with additional
functionality that still needs to be tested by user. To accomplish this, create
“Production” and “Testing” folders and mount them giving a user friendly names.
Any QlikView document placed in any of these mounted sub
folders will appear in Access Point (provided the user has the correct AD
permissions). For this reason it is important to not mount a folder that sits
within another mounted folder – as all documents in that folder will appear in
Access Point twice. By mounting other folders you have more control over where
your documents sit, you can also remove documents from Access Point (perhaps
temporarily) without physically removing the files.
Document Categories and Attributes
To manage documents within Access Point, you can use
categories and attributes.
Once a document is uploaded into “Production” or “Testing”
folder, click on User Documents under
Document within QlikView Management
Console (QMC) to assign categories and attributes. Then highlight the document
you want to manage and click on Document
Select category (choose between “Production”, “Testing”, or
Type Attribute name such as “Healthcare” and then value such
as “Qlik Demo”.
Once the changes applied, and Access Point is refreshed, the
corresponding categories will be reflected.
As a general rule, Anexinet Access Point is organized as
Category: (defines environment. At any time on
or more environment can be removed from Access Point)
Attribute: (defines industry type)
Attribute Value: (describes application)
This organization is flexible and can be adjusted as new
business requirements arise.
