Using .csp files in Business Objects R3

Posted on 2009-04-16
Last Modified: 2013-11-15
We are currently on BO R2 and DO NOT USE SINGLE SIGN ON or AD.  We currently have URLs embedded in another application which call and display Crystal reports from BO without the user having to enter a UID/Password using a number of .csp files.
We are considering upgrading to BO R3 and I would like to know if this methodology will still work in R3, as I believe I have read that .csp files will no longer be supported.  Does anyone have experience of this?   If .csp files are not supported, could the same be achieved by other means. Thanks

    CSP might work but is deprecated. So the recommended path would be to config SSO. There should be no issue in what you are trying to achieve and configuring SSO will not be very difficult in your situation.
    Also go to XIR3.1 not XIR3

    Thanks for the comment. Unfortunately SSO is not an option at the moment.  What are the differences between R3.1 and R3?

    There is a .net support with 3.1. LCM is available with 3.1 and quite a few publishing enhancements as well. A number of issues on XIR3 have been resolved with 3.1
