Suppress/Hide Prompts - OpenDocument - Interactive Viewer

Is anyone aware of a method for hiding/disabling/suppressing prompts for input data in the interactive viewer? We have a custom application that launches a WebI report through OpenDocument, and the application has applied rules to the nature of the prompt values. Once OpenDocument has launched the viewer, the desired behavior is for the user to specify prompt values through the application, not through the viewer. The users are internal as compared to external, so there isn't a big issue with preventing hacks to the URL to override the prompt values. I see other admin settings for other capabilities in the left panel, but not for the user input prompts.

    I think you would have to have your application display its prompt dialog, then call openDocument passing the user entered values using the lsS prompt name syntax

      Sorry, I thought you were talking about the stopping the prompt dialog from appearing when you refreshed the report.

      If you are talking interactive viewing mode this it is possible to hide/show toolbars using user security. I don't think it is possible to hide just the User Prompt Input tab.

      You can alos restrict the user to HTML viewer.

      Hope this helps

    SAP has replied that our best option is to write a custom viewer to have this level of control.
