Qlik Management Console – User Directory Connectors

One can integrate user directories to Qlik to give the organization’s users access to Qlik. This can be accomplished by creating User Directory Connectors.

User Directory Connectors can be accessed from the main QMC start menu. User directories have types depending on their sources (SQL, Excel, Active Directory, etc.):

One can create or modify user directory connectors by clicking on an item in the above list and selecting Edit, or Create New:


The most important attribute here is the Connection String. This can be visible or Encrypted so that other QMC users don’t have access to the whole list of users.

Here is an example of the connection Strings:Driver={SQL Server Native Client 11.0};Server=;Database=CMI_DW;Trusted_Connection=yes;
