Scheduling BW Crystal Reports Using SNC?

Here is the workflow that I am trying to handle:

I have created a Crystal report against a BW query and published that report to our BOE environment. That report is currently being scheduled to run in BOE using my BW credentials under Database Configuration. I do not want to continually maintain the BW credentials under Database Configuration when password changes occur.

Can I avoid this maintenance by enabling server-side SNC between BW and BOE?

    If you are logging in with SAP credentials you do should not need SNC just setting the report for SSO should work. SNC is typically only needed if you are logging in without SAP credentials.

    If for some reason this is wron then it would work, i just don't think it's necessarry unless you are loggin in with LDAP/DAP/enterprise/or SAP portal SSO.

    • Tim,

      Thank you very much for your help!! We were able to configure server-side SNC in our dev systems and my tests confirm that viewing and scheduling of BW Crystal reports both work as desired. The reports are running (both scheduled and on-demand) with no BW credentials supplied and the SSO option set. I even setup a recurring instance, changed my BW password, and the report continued to run successfully afterwards. So thanks again!!
