    Hi Selvarasan,

    Just to summarize your requirements, you have portal and you are using OpenDocument (URLs) listed on your portal to open BO reports.

    What content (in your case BO report links with OpenDoc) to be shown on your portal that can not be controlled from BO side. So that control needs to handled at Portal level using content management solution.

    When a user clicks on  a link which opean a BO report, whether user can view/modify/save such access is controlled in BO CMC. So please consider following 3 scenarios as per your requirements:

    • User 1 -> View Only Access -> Report 1 = Will not get a save & refresh button when report opens
    • User 2 -> No Access -> Report 1 = Will get a message saying "You are not autuorized to view this document, check with your administrator"
    • User 3 -> Full Access -> Report 1 = Will be able to open the report and will get Save and other optons enabled

    All above three cases needs to defined in BO CMC using Security Rights option. To have more details of BO CMC Security handling, please refere to following SCN link:

      Hi Selva,

      In BO 4.0, if user does not have rights to save file, Save button will be grayed/disabled. There is no option to remove it from the control panel. But in XI 3.1, it used to remove the button from panel itself when user does not have rights to save report.

      Regarding Open button, its exactly same as Folder -> Right click on Document-> View option. As long as user has View option enabled, he/she can open document. Once document opened, he/she can use the Open button to access documents to which he/she has rights. So open button can not be removed from panel or grayed/disabled on control panel.

      Even the stylesheet modification will allow you to modify report content only. You can not play with report control panel. (pls refer to http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-27679 for stylesheet modification)

      Similar questions were asked and posted as an Idea on SAP, so in future release we might be able to control it. (http://scn.sap.com/thread/2122193)

      So only way left to achieve your requirement is Java SDK. Please refer to this link (http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-27465

      I hope this clariies your doubt.

    Hi Selvarasan,

    I think I came to late, but I tried to do the same and I coud, at least, grey out the save button so none can even press it.

    In order to do that you have to add/remove rights in a new or existing access level and under "General Global" rights you will denie the right called "Edit Object". After that, the save button will be greyed out and disabled.

    I hope it still heps you.

    Regards,

    Victor

    Hi Selvarasan,

    To move further I would firstly like to know the BO version whether it is XI 3.0 or XI 4.0.

    Cant really comment if XI 4.0 as I didn't get chance to have hands-on 😔

    However, in case of BO XI 3.x, OpenDoc web application is used to open Webi reports.

    Therefore, option to navigate between repository folders and OPEN report should not be possible.

    It is possible while working under InfoViewApp or CMC web application.

    Please correct my understanding if wrong.

    Saving a document could be possible however that could be restricted by modifying access rights at user level or user group level through CMC.

    Regards,

    Yuvraj.

    Hello,

    This option of selectively displaying buttons is available from 4.1 onwards. If you only wish to show the report with no buttons at all , you can use the DHTML format of the WebI, more information here -->

    Hello All,

    I want the users to edit the report or query and do any modifications as required. But I don't want them to save the report. Is it possible?

    I am able to remove "save as" but the "save" option isn't going away.

    Please advice.

    Thanks,

    Hari
