Removing Administrator Password in SAP Business Objects 4.XX
As a Business Intelligence Consultant it is always important to ensure security is set up as a standard within any tool and not just SAP Business Objects BI Platform. However I had received an odd request from a customer one day, which was to set the Administrator password blank. I searched everywhere to locate this information on the web and was unsuccessful. So I then started to go through Central Management Console in search of removing the password limitations within Central Management Console. This guide will only assist you on how to set this up if you currently have the existing password for the Administrator account in SAP Business Objects and that you are using the Enterprise authentication type, I have not confirmed this for any other authentication type.
Go to Central Management Console:
Select your type of Authentication (I can only confirm that Enterprise Authentication Works)
Follow the steps as follows and finally update:
Now that you have ensured that the minimum length of the password is removed, we must now remove the password.
Go to Users & Groups
Select User List in the Users & Groups:
Go to the User Administrator:
Finally Remove the password here and select the box for Password Never Expires and Save & Close to update.
The password has now been removed for the SAP Business Objects Administrator.
Follow these steps at your own risk, Security protocol within an organization does not allow removal of any password, this is for personal purposes only.
