How to log on SAP BI Launch pad as a different user

Hi,

The platform is running Crystal Reports inside SAP BI launch pad inside IE 11.

I am troubleshooting an issue a user experiences running a crystal report within the environment.

I am making modifications to the report, publish and ask user to check.

As a developer with admin right on the 'SAP BusinessObjects BI launch pad' is there a way to log on as the user and test the changes under his permission/rights ?

Thank you.

    No you can't.If you are looking to test something as other user then create dummy user acocunt and add dummy user in the same user group to test.

    Best way is to create a dummy user and add it to the user group group.

    Or you can check with your BO Admin, regarding any existing dummy accounts (In my organization we are using it)

    Hello Prakash,

    If you have admin rights, go to CMC and create Enterprise Alias of the user and give a password to it. Steps are:

    1. In CMC under "Users and Groups", select required users, right click and select properties

    2. At right hand bottom corner click on "New Alias"

    3. Give an appropriate password.

    Once done, you can go to the link: http://ServerName:8080/BOE/BI/logonNoSso.jsp

    There you can select authentication as Enterprise, user name and password (which you updated earlier in Enterprise Alias) and login using that user.

    Thanks,

    Deepak
