OpenDoc timeout through a Proxy server (Oracle LDAP setup)


We have deployed our BI 4.1 SP 2 based web i reports using Open Doc urls. The thing is these Open doc URLS are proxied through a proxy server called OHS (its an oracle product). We are trying to implement a 15 minute time out in the proxy server, where the proxy server terminates any session that goes in and replaces or redirects to a log out page. This seems to be typical to be achieved on any Java Site. But with Open doc, it is behaving differently. For example, if we open a WEB I Report with Multiple tabs, during the time out the logout page appears on the tab we click on after the time out window, rather than replacing the whole report. Its shown in the image, is there anything we can do in to overwrite this kind of behavior. Has any one had this kind of behavior with a proxy server and was able to resolve this issue?

    Well, that should be because opendoc has no log-out functionality 😊 .

    You can try creating a new page (html) and redirect to this file once timeout.

    This page can contain code for login page or you can just close browser window 😉.

    There is nothing much that can be customised in standard opendoc webapplication. In order to attain specific functionality you would need to create custom webapplication. Like Embedding Java Webi Report Panel in Custom Application - Business Intelligence (BusinessObjects) - SCN Wiki

    Hope this helps.

      We already have a login page and logout page - which is developed and maintained in the proxy server. The problem is when the proxy server tries to override the OpenDoc page, it seems to override only the active call. We would like the log out page to cover the whole window with out leaving any web i doc residue.
