We are currently developing a Java application that uses the BO Enterprise SDK to save and update reports. We would like to be able to set default parameters, suppress prompting for them, and set the database logon credentials all programmatically.

I see that this can be done manually when editing the properties of a report object through the CMC, but this would prove impractical when taking into account scalability (we need to be able to handle thousands of reports, if not more).

Any and all feedback welcome!

The SDK is explained on this website
http://devlibrary.businessobjects.com/BusinessObjectsXIR2/en/devsuite.htm

That's the most specific I could find on that site for your situation
BOE SDK -> Java Developer Guide -> sample code -> feature examples -> Display and modify database logon information for a report

Basically, you need to query the InfoStore for the report, change it's settings, then commit the object back to the InfoStore to save those changes permanently.
