Force a logon to the BW server via webtemplate URL, when already loged on

Hi all BW experts.

I am currently working on a BW project where we have developed more than 80 Web templates. One of the web templates (DEFAULT) should be visible to everyone on the intranet, without logging on to the BW server. We created a dummy user with no authorization and added the following to the URL pointing to the DEFAULT template:


It works perfect and the WEB template is displayed without prompting for UserID and PW.

We have made a MENU webtemplate (K_MENU), containing only our roles in a role web item. But when the user tries to access this web template from a link on the intranet, the BW system continues to use the dummy user and PW

(&sap-user=xxx&sap-password=xxx) !!!

Hence the user is not prompted for UserID and PW, and the page is blank because the dummy user does not have any roles assigned.

We use the following URL to access the K_MENU template:

Is there a way to change the URL above to force that the user is prompted for UserID and PW ? The BW system/WAS must not continue to use the dummy user.

Alternative solutions are very welcome, because the goal is to display one single webtemplate on the intranet, without having to logon.

Hope someone has a bright idea,

Niels Lausten, SAP DK

    You can have the first template as STATELESS and create a new bex service and use the new service for accessing the second template.

      Hi DS.

      Thanks for your answer.

      I have tried to create a new service: zkvalforside (in trans: SICF) on the same level as the BEx service, under which the first webtemplate is run. The first template is displayed, but the problem still remains. When the next template is called using the standard BEx service, the user is still NOT prompted for a logon ?!

      The first webtemplate is STATELESS as you suggested.

      Have you got some more information/ideas on the problem ?

      Best regards,

      Niels Lausten SAP DK
