Passing Crystal Session to embedded Dashboard


Hi CR Folks,

We have requirement where we need to create a crystal report with embedded Flash obejct (Dashboard). As the dashboard has data connections, it prompts for login credentials while loading from the crystal report.

Is there a way I can pass a session token/id from Crystal to Dashboard/SWF?

PS: We can suppress Login Window by:

1. Passing CELogonToken from Dashboard/WEBI/Crystal to call report/dashboard object using OpenDocument URL.

2. Passing CELogonToken to DocumentDownload URL to load an SWF object in SWF Loader component of Dashboards.

Here are reference links which talk about opening a dashboard from a JSP:

1. How to embed a dashboard in a JSP file so that it does not prompt for BO credentials

2. Xcelisius Dashboards outside of Infoview with the help of CELogonToken | David Lai's Business Intelligence Blog

Any inputs would really be appreciated.
