SAP BO Client tools with auto populated details of the dev, test, pre prod and production instances

Dear All,

Please find our requirement and let us know your approaches on this.

We have an organisation of 500 users in the company and out of which 200 users need self service capabilities and also they need all the client tools in their systems.

So we globally roll out all the client tools in the associated business users machines like windows updates and like patches.

When they launched SAP BO any client tool they need to select dev, test, pre prod and production drop down in each of the client tools, so that they will only enter credentials.

For example if we deliver 200 users SAP launchpad then as part of configurations while rolling out we will include the dev, test preprod and production details in .ini files so that after instillation of sap logon pad they can see available systems and accordingly they will login.

Similarly how can it be achievable in SAP Business Objects and associated all of the client tools??

    As far as I know it is not possible with BOE client tools.

      Thanks Denis

      So each time if we rolled out to business users its not always possible for us to send the instructions for them to choose the system names - Hence we must need some fix or turn around to this.

      There could be some configuration parameters and when we rolling out to all the business users through remote installations those configurations must be updated in their respective systems.(For SAP GUI Installation and .ini file settings we can achieve this)

      For examples IDT and Universe Designer it is not possible as that will follow different approach and it will not request system name for logging into the systems.

      If we using Webrich client there is an option to select system names and that should be populated automatically by using the configuration parameters in the back end.(it should show dev test pre prod and prodcution systems)

      I am sure this might be require for most of the clients
