User Authentication question

Hello,

We created BI web reports using Web Application Designer.

We created BPS (Planning) web reports using Web Interface Builder (BSP).

Initially, the user logs into the BPS reports web page. The user is

authenticated during this logon. In the BPS web report, links are

provided for BI reports. When the user clicks on any of these links, the user

is again asked for authentication. We would like to eliminate the 2nd

authentication. We would like to pass the logon credentials from BSP (i.e. BPS reports page)to Java (BI reports page) in this case. How to accomplish this?

Thanks

    You can think of having a web template with these reports assigned to the template.

    Maintain authorizations for the reports.

      Hi Ravi,

      <i>You can think of having a web template with these reports assigned to the template. Maintain authorizations for the reports.</i>

      Do you mean to say that we need to create a new web template and provide links to the BI reports from within this template.

      In that case, the planning reports will have only one link to the BI reports instead of multiple links. Still, the user needs to logon to the main web report in order to access the multiple links within.

      Isn't there a way of passing the credentials from the BPS reports (BSP) page to BI reports (Java)?

      Thanks.

    Another thing worth a try is to have authorization variable.
