Question:

Is Business Objects security passed into the Report Launch application?


Answer:

Security is passed from the application into Business Objects through several methods:

  • Secure login
  • Encoded trusted pass through
  • Cookies to Enterprise, LDAP, and Windows AD methods


This eliminates the need to maintain security in the application and reporting system separately. It also eliminates custom screen development for each new report or parameter and improves application performance with off loaded report processing.
