Tool to update passwords frequently

Do we have a way or tool that allows us to update all the database configurations of 100s of reports at a single go , in the cmc? We have several environments and need to update the passwords frequently , every n weeks.

We are upgrading a set of reports to the new 4.2 environment and need a way to update the passwords all at once for several reports.

  • Sorry for the confusion.

    These are Crystal reports saved on BO PLatform and in the CMC ,under Default Settings within the Database configuration the reports get saved with an ODBC connection.

    It is this password am referring too. We have a (compliance) requirement to update this password every 6 weeks for every report. So that makes it a lot of manual work which we are trying to avoid.

    Please explain the workflow further. If you have proper BI Platform implemented the reports don't require passwords, only the userID's require password.

    Are you looking for a way to reset the password for the users ?

    You can use SDK to set all the users to same password ?

    You can also integrate the BI Platform with AD Directory, that the users only need to manage ONE password.

    Hi Sandhya,

    Are they WebI reports?

    If yes, are they universe based reports?
