Central repository and Windows AD

BODS 4.1 Sp02 .

IPS 4.0 with Sp04

We have Windows AD with SSO set on IPS level, Windows AD works fine in Designer and in CMC. My question is: is there a way how to use Windows Active directory group for Central repository authorisation? At the moment I add all users manually there and it seems unsupported that BODS automatically takes all users from AD.

What do i mean. I have ad group domain\group and I want all users from that group to be authorized to work with central repository. manual add\remove works fine, but what about automatical inheritance ?

    Hi Mister,

    Yes, It was possible but in that case all user is having the rights to move the content from Local repository to Secure Central Repository.

    For E.G: Here i have 6 user that are attached in One Group.

    • User 1
    • User 2
    • User 3
    • User 4
    • User 5
    • User 6

    Add all user to Central Repository Group (Create or Add in Administrator Group).

    Then login in SAP Business Objects Data Services Management console and add all User in one Group and save it.

    Now all users (User 1,User 2,User 3,User 4,User 5,User 6) are having rights to move the Objects (project , Work Flow, Dataflow,...) to Secure Central Repository.

    And also add the specific secure central repository to local repository for moving the content from local to secure central repository.

    • Hello

      Extreme sorry for the delay. Group itself is visible in CMC and BODS can be used in SSO mode, in BODS admin mode when i click on Central repository i see only users from the group, not the group itself.

      Windows AD group has enough rights, for example - i use Administrator user to login in BODS admin console, admin as far as I know have all rights included, except few
