Dashboard with link to portal with username and password

Hello

I have to link my flashfile to a portal.

The flash file is stored in Infoview. The link to the report is like:

http://servername:8080/OpenDocument/opendoc/openDocument.jsp?iDocID=2222&sType=swf&sRefresh=Y&mode=full

To get this flashfile to be displayed, I have to be logon to Infoview with username and password.

can I post this username and password directly in the link?

so I do not have to be logon to infoview to get the report?

I want the logon to be done automatic when I press the link.

Thank You

    For security reasons it is not advisable to have username and passwords in the link. You can create a jsp (or similar depending on your landscape) page with username and password hardcoded in it which in turn pass the session or authentication token to the actual reports. Users can't see the contents of jsp page so no security issues.
