New methods of authentication available in the CMC of SAP BO BI 4.1
You can see below the four authentication modes possible in the version of SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.0 SP6 :
In SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.1, we can see that the plateform supports single sign-on and reporting from further ERP systems in the CMC :
The integration of the four following types of authentication are now integrated into the platform :
- Oracle EBS
- JD Edwards EnterpriseOne
- PeopleSoft Enterprise
You can map existing roles into BI platform accounts.
After you map roles, users are able to log on to BI platform applications with their ERP credentials.
This eliminates the need to recreate individual user and group accounts within BI platform.
Maurin, these are not new to BI4.1. They are actually available in BI4.0. To install them, you have to run through custom install and enable them, or run a modify install to add them if you have already run an install.
Whether you see these are not is dependent on your install options.
Hope in 4.1 will be much easy with Windows AD, because in 4.0 it's nightmare!
My basis team spend month to implement SSO with Windows AD, and still not finished.
Please, what issues are you facing?
For PoCs I have done it took usually less than a day assuming all preparation is done beforehand (such as having the AD Administrator available, creating SPN, having Admin rights on the Windows Server hosting SAP BI BusObjects, etc.).
Spending a month assuming your SAP BI Platform is Windows server based (and not a huge cluster) and you have administrative accesss to the Windows AD is... well.. too much
Is there any way of disabling the new login options, and selecting which login options apepar in the drop-down list?
