User selecting default display page from detailed navigation

Hello all,

Can individual users select a default display page from the detailed navigation section? For instance, say I have a list of pages in the detailed navigation each showing a BW report;

Detailed Navigation

Report 1

Report 2

Report 3

Report 4

So when the users navigate from the top level to here then 'Report 1' is automatically displayed. Say that towards the end of the quarter userX will be looking at 'Report 3' mostly while userY will wish to concentrate on 'Report 2', can the users themselves set their default? Or must this be done by the portal admin, rearranging the order of these pages in the assigned role or changing the display priority of them? But then it wouldn't be per user, if they shared the role.

If the users cannot do this themselves is there a way to do it in Java perhaps?

Thanks for you time,

Hi Patrick,

the property Default Entry for Folder (see document "Installing Patch 4 for EP 6.0 SP2" on, under 6.3.2) is per portal, not per user.

What you could do is create a proxy iView with a property ReportNr, where this property can be set by the user itself. The iView checks this property and forwards the request to the corresponding iView.

Hope it helps

Hi Detlev,

We decided on an easy way through.

Each page has to display a BW report, very simple. So we're going to give the users an iView where they get a list of all BW reports that they have access to (read from a text file). From there they select what they wish to be their default report (written to another text file).

The default page (first on detailed navigation) reads the text file and displays the BW report found there in an IsolatedHtmlContainer. Not precisely what was wanted at the start but pretty much offers the same functionality.

Thanks for your help, I'll read the doc. It's always good to know these things.
