BI- Launchpad services: Authentication Issue

In this blog post, we will discuss, how to enable the drop down option in BI- Launchpad after upgrading BOBJ 4.3 SP03 PL 200 to 300.

After upgrading BOBJ 4.3 SPS3 PL 200 to 300, we are facing BI-Launchpad authentication issue.


When logging in BI launch pad, there is no drop-down option available to select the Authentication mode.


Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\Tomcat\webapps\BOE\WEB-INF\config\default.


Open Fiori BI file with notepad.



Copy this file Fiori BI file from default directory and past it in the custom directory.

Custom directory:  C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\tomcat\webapps\BOE\WEB-INF\config\custom.


Open FioriBI file and change below values.

authentication.visible=false to authentication.visible=true.


Save the file and Copy this file in C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\warfiles\webapps\BOE\WEB-INF\config.


Now go to Central  configuration Manager and restart the Tomcat.


NOTE: From SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence Platform 4.3 onwards file is replaced by file. That is from 4.3 onwards above changes to be done in file.

Now try to login BI-Launchpad


Now able to see the Authentication Drop down options.
