SAP Authentication BI Launch Pad

Former Member

Hi,

I need the authentication pulldown to be displayed in BI Launch Pad. I have gone through the steps in the guide i.e.

1. Create a new file called "BILaunchpad.properties" in the following directory

D:\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\warfiles\webapps\BOE\WEB-INF\config\custom

2. Add the following enetries.

authentication.visible=true

authentication.default=secEnterprise

cms.visible=true

3. Restarted tomcat.

The authentication pull down is not displaying. Do I have to redeply the war files? If yes, how do i do this? Or is there something else i need to do?

I am using BI 4.0 SP5 Patch 6.

Thanks,

Leo,

    Make the same changes to "BIlaunchpad.properties" within the \Tomcat6\webapps\BOE\WEB-INF\config\default\ folder as well.  Then restart Tomcat and you should see the changes.

The custom folder is used to retail your changes when you update the SP or FP but the current changes must happen in the default folder.

Regards,

Ajay

You are making the changes directly in the war files you need to make them in the deployed location if you do not wish to redeploy, please use the custom folder for changes..

i.e. \Tomcat6\webapps\BOE\WEB-INF\config\custom\
