I want to invoke Discoverer from a URL specifying the sso and the Connection to use WITHOUT the Discoverer Connection Page appearing.

First things first:

Oracle Application Server 10g (9.0.4)
Oracle Discoverer Viewer

I am using Discoverer using SSO.

The url to discoverer viewer/plus with ssoconn specified works great, but it brings up the discoverer connection screen.  The user then selects a connection to proceed into discoverer.

I would like to be able to specify the connection to be used on the url.  With the connection specified, the discoverer connection screen should not appear.

See:Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer Configuration Guide
...you'll need to register with OTN (which is free)...

To quote from Oracle documentation:

http://<host.domain>:<port>/discoverer/plus? is the Discoverer Viewer URL.

Add the parameter: cn=<value> to specify the connection ID of a Discoverer connection.
For more information about finding out connection IDs, see:

Other parameters:
opendbid=<value> specifies the workbook ID of a Discoverer scheduled workbook.
sheetid=<value> specifies the worksheet ID of a Discoverer scheduled worksheet.
workbooksource=Scheduled identifies the workbook as scheduled.

Let me know if you need further help...I'll post more information when I'm at work in the morning is necessary,

For Discoverer Viewer, with the username and password in the URL use:

...change fm (format), pg (page) as required.

    You might also want to look at the docs on OTN:


It requires a free registration.  This may address the SSO & connection issue without requiring a userid and password on the URL.

Good luck!

My first example allows connection without placing the password in the URL...simply replace *plus* in the URL with *viewer*.
