I need staff to be able to publish reports in Infoview fo Business Objects however they have to be able to update and make the odbc database configurations static with the option of:  Use same database logon as when report is run

this is under Properties - 'Default Settings', Database Configurations.  

What security do I have to give this folder or group as now they currently have 'adminstrators' group.  

Can this be achieved through Infoview or do they have to go through Central Management Console?

That setting is only available through the CMC.

Thank you for responding so quickly.  So in order to not have the user be prompted to enter the database ODBC connection user ID and password when these staff publish reports, they have to publish it through CMC?  That is odd but typical of SAP to give one module the rights and another not the rights when a person has the authority.  

So Now anyway under CMC, I don't want this group to have rights to the modules what security setting or right name and collection is that under as I will have to secure them out of this module ability.

Infoview is meant to be the typical user's interface to the reports whereas the CMC is the administrative tool.

I am not a server admin so I don't know what settings control the permissions.  I know you can control the users rights in the CMC.  I can sign into our CMC but don't have permissions to do a lot.

Help in the CMC may provide the information you need.  There is also a CMC Administrators Guide.
