disable usage of java-applet

Hi all, we are wondering if there is a way to diable the "java applet" preference in the user-preferences in Infoview ?

We found there is the CMS-property SI_DATA.DOCUMENT_WiCreateTechno which we can use to list all our users which are still using the Java-applet.

But in future we want to force all our WEBI-Users to use HTML-mode (as apparently Oracle is going to start charging to use java)

So, has anybody any idea whether it is possible to prevent the usage of the java-applet

Many thanks

    In order to prevent users from selecting the Java Applet for usage (via preferences in BI Launchpad) in the future, you need to deny the right to the Rich Internet Application for all users via the CMC. You can do this using a custom access level or explicitly on the Web Intelligence Application. The right you need to deny is as follows:

    Collection: Application

    Type: Web Intelligence

    Right Name: Interfaces - enable Rich Internet Application

    This will hide the Java Applet option in the preferences area of the BI Launchpad so users will no longer be able to select it. A nice side effect of this is any user that still has the Java Applet selected for usage will automatically end up redirected into using the HTML/Interactive interface. BusinessObjects ignores the Java Applet selection if the user is denied access to the Java Applet.
