    Hi,

    Thank you very much for this tutorial.

    When i logoff from BiLaunchpad portal it works very fine and i have a message box : Do you want to close this window. (using IE 8)

    When i have access  to BiLaunchpad by my enterprise portal (SSO authentication)  it is working without the navigator message.

    Is there any reason and workaround to have the message box ?

    Regards

    Gil

    Thanks,

    Used url.exit to redirect the user back to a corporate home page, rather than close bilaunchpad as described, simpler to execute, but hard to find in the documentation.

    Just wanted to add an update to the path for BOE 4.1 SP5.

    \BusinessObjects41\tomcat\webapps\BOE\WEB-INF\config\custom
