I have the following situation, the user logs into SAP BO 4.0 Launch pad application, he needs to start our external web application and therefore we created an hyperlink. The application opens in a new tab, that's running fine. Our application uses BO SDK to provide some functionality (browse user SAP folders, reports or so), and therefore we need to log in into the current user session.
Is there any way to deliver either the serialized session or logon token to external application? Are there any internal variables to be used? Or should I use totally different approach?
There would be a workaround by delivering just the current BO user name to the external app, and than using a separate (administrators) login to fetch only the current user's data. But this I guess is not the right way to do the job.
Any help is greatly appreciated
