what is the name of the 'management console' which is used to manage security/permissions/users in sap business objects? And where does all the configuration data reside relating to the security configuration, e.g. does business objects come with a standard database for storing configuration information, and out of interest is that typically oracle/mysql/MSSQL.

Hi,

So, are looking forward to Central Management Console for Business Objects.

I have read that Central Management Console's configuration is stored under SAP SQL Anywhere (SQLA) database, so I think it's an SAP database and if you need further information, you can check SAP Central Management Console user guide using this link:

The database for BO can be any database you want.  BO comes with SQL Anywhere (Sybase) and is generally our database of choice however if our clients have their own database (MS SQL, Oracle, etc) we can install BO using that.

I think his question related to database is for the underlying database which is used for configuring the CMC, hence I mentioned that SQL Anywhere DB.

I understand what he wants.  You can use any database you desire.  They include SQL Anywhere as an option.

I work with some clients who use a database server they don't own or control.  They need to have a DBMS that can handle the BO database requirements.  SQL Anywhere provides them an inexpensive solution.
