Howdy all.....and Frodoman...
I am in need of your expertise once again.
I have various people accessing their relevant Crystal Reports on the RAS server (CE9).  Some of them utilize several reports, and now they are wondering if their UserName and Password can be Cache'd for the session so that they dont have to keep entering them over and over.
How can this be done, if at all???
Remember that these reports are bieng driven by .JSP pages.
Thanks for your time.
-Dave.

Are you calling the reports via an URL?  If so then you could probably cache the user's login information on your jsp page and pass it in each URL that they call - http://support.businessobjects.com/library/kbase/articles/c2013600.asp

I've never actually done this myself though because often different reports hit different databases which in turn require different credentials so caching would be counter-productive.  If you have single login then I can see your users complaining having to enter it multiple times...

Hey FrodoMan.
I'll go with this, but I've been told to "not spend too much time on users silly requests".
When I have an operational solution, I'll post it back here.
Thanks for the time.
