It shows blank page on click logout in browser. Any idea how to achieve log outfunctionality ?

 

Its bit urgent!!!. Appreciate quick response.

    I'm currently setting up QlikView V11 and I believe I'm having the same problem. If you are logged into AccessPoint and you select the 'Sign Out' link, all it really does is take you back to the log in page. From there, if you select the 'Sign In' it actually takes you back into your AccessPoint session without needing to enter Username and Password again. This is a major security problem for my company. This was actually a problem we found going back to version 9 and it still hasn't been resolved.

     

    If anyone has a good solution, I could use some help on this as well.

     

    Thanks,

      Well, I have still not found a solution for your problem but yes if you don't close the browser window then it does not ask for the username and password when you again try to sign in. So, if you want to ask it for user name and password then you need to close the browser window.

      You can advice your users that they should close their browser after using qlikview that way even if they don't click on sign out they are signed out as well as if anyone needs to login, he needs to enter the username and password.

       

      You can also take Qliktech's help because I suspect there might be some setting in some XML file which can help you with this issue.

      I've contacted support and they confirmed this is a bug and will be addressed in the next release. Not sure if they mean service pack or full release. But I would think this is a pretty big security issue. I know it is for us. For reference the bug # is 45832.

        I´ve the same problem: the user opens a document, click and sign out. The user paste the document link in the same browser and Access Point opens the document without ask authentication.

        Our vendor has confirmed this is still a bug in the 11.2 SR1 release. The log out functionality still only takes the user back to the login page of AccessPoint and doesn't kill the session. The only work around that will provide us with the security to keep us compliant is to require all users outside of our LAN to use a VPN connection to access the QlikIView AccessPoint. This works but really deminishes the user experience. Not sure why QlikView has taken over a year to correct what should be a very simple session kill in the log out process?

    Hi,

     

         I suspect that the problem is with the order of the Actions given.

     

         Just change as Open URL an d Close Document in the Actions of the Logout image

     

    Regards

    Any update on this bug? We use the product in a medical enviroment and this is a huge HIPAA violation for us.

    Our vendor submitted a support ticket with Qlikview and they have responded that this will be fixed in an upcoming service releases and/or patches for resolution of bug 45832.
