Business Objects - Enterprise Portal Authentication

147 Views

Hi,

We have a requirement where we have to display the contents of a webi report in Enterprise portal without displaying the Controls of webi report(Refresh button, save as etc). To achieve this we have created custom Java Pages using Business objects SDK to display the report contents. The Java pages needs username and password for authentication and report id is also entered so that the contents of the reports are displayed.

Earlier there was trusted authentication setup between Enterprise Portal and Business Objects due to which the password was not required to pass from EP to Business Objects and the webi reports were displayed. But due to this new requirement we are using the Custom Java pages now.

My Question is "Can we pass any authentication related token from Enterprise Portal to these custom java pages for authentication?" I have read somewhere that SAP Logon Ticket is used for authentication. Is there any way to capture this ticket and passed to the custom java pages .

We are using Business Objects XI 3.1 SP3 and SAP BI 7.0

Thanks,

Pankaj Goswami
