Where to maintain authorizations when using BO on top of SAP Infocubes

Hi all

We have a scenario with SAP BI 7.0 and Business Objects XI Release 2 installed, where we want end users to view reports through BO Web Intelligence (the users will have access to the reports through the BO Web Interface). It is our plan to build the BO Universes on top of a range of small to medium sized SAP BW Queries (not any queris that include entire cubes etc.). My question is now:

What is the optimal way of maintaining authorizations in a scenario like this? I would expect a setup with Single Sign On between BO and SAP BI, where we maintain the authorizations through SAP Analysis Authorizations, to be the best solution, but is this feasible?

I would really like to hear experiences from other people, and any comments are welcome.

Best regards,

Martin S√łgaard

    I am having dashboards currently build in Cognos on top of BW ,so architecture is

    BW datamodel >Bex query >Cognos views

    advantage we can leverage the Authorization concept of BW ,we have here is the COGNOS portal,

    My thoughts ...BO views should be able to published on to SAP portal and then you can utilize the SSO future.

    Hope it Helps

    Hi Soogaard,

    that would be the recommended approach to use Single-Sign on and to maintain the authorizations on the SAP side so that you keep the maintenance to a minimum.

    hope this helps and feel free to ask any questions
