Get the user and password inserted in the loggin screen.

Hi all.

I have created a Xcelsius using a query Bex as web service using the Data Management using Query as a Web Service. It runs ok, inside the Xcelsius I have create an object with a hyperlink to call a Report of Crystal Reports. I have used the syntax


but with this syntax, when click on the hyperlink, the system ask again for the user and password (the Xcelsius is executed in the infoview, so, I have enter the user and password in the infoview logon.)

If I use the syntax


I have no way to get the user and password introduced in the logging screen of the infoview.

How can I call the Report of Crystal Reports using the user logged in the infoview?

    I understand that you created a Xcelsius that contains an opendocument link to open a crystalreport doc.

    You published the Xcelsius to infoview in format .swf, then when you click on the link to open crystalReport, you get prompted.

    This is normal because Infoview is an application that run in its own context and opendocument is an other application that run in its own context.

    So you logon to Infoview with a credential that is only valid for Infoview and this credential is not used by opendocument application.

    It is a normal behaviour.

    To workaround this you need a single sign-on mechanism. One is to use the BusinessObjects Enterprise SDK to create a token.

    For instance, instead of directly calling within Xcelsius, the opendocument link to open crystalreport, you can indirectly called for instance a customed

    JSP application based on BusinessObjects Enterprise SDK that will contain the logic to create a token then pass the token to the opendocument URL to open crystalreport in SSO mode.

    Please find below a snippet code about how the JSP customed application based on BusinessObjects Enterprise SDK will look like:


    String cms = "<serverName>";

    String username = "<userName>";

    String password = "<password>";

    String auth = "secEnterprise";

    IEnterpriseSession enterpriseSession;

    String token = "";

    try {

    // Get the enterpriseSession object from the web session.

    ISessionMgr sm = CrystalEnterprise.getSessionMgr();

    // Log on to BusinessObjects Enterprise.

    enterpriseSession = sm.logon(username, password, cms, auth);

    ILogonTokenMgr logonTokenMgr = enterpriseSession.getLogonTokenMgr();

    token = logonTokenMgr.createLogonToken("", 10, 10);

    response.sendRedirect("http://<server>:<port>/OpenDocument/opendoc/openDocument.jsp?sType=wid&iDocID=<id>&token=" + token);

    } catch (Exception er) {




    For more information about the JAVA BusinessObjects Enterprise SDK, refer to those links:

    Link: [API reference|]

    Link: [Developer Guide|]

    Link: [Samples Code|]

    Note that if you are not a developer, you might need a help of developer to implement the project for you.
