InfoView – Adding a Data Warning Message

Question:

Our data is very sensitive and we’ve been asked to provide a warning to users accessing InfoView. Can I do this without using the SDK?

Answer:

Yes. This requires a modification of the InfoView configuration file for your web application server.

For Tomcat, this configuration file is in:

  • <BusinessObjectsInstallation>\Tomcat\webapps\businessobjects\enterprise115\ desktoplaunch\WEB-INF\web.xml

For .NET, this configuration file is in:

  • <BusinessObjectsInstallation>\BusinessObjects Enterprise 115\Web Content\Enterprise115\InfoView\web.config

Each of these files has an app.name.greeting setting (for .NET it is a key, for java it is a <context-param> ).

Modify the value in either case to fill in the blank, “Welcome to ________________.”

For Java:

Any modification to this file should then be redeployed to the desktoplaunch.war file. The Apache Tomcat service will need to be restarted in order for it to take affect.

For .NET:

The World Wide Web Publishing service will need to be restarted in order for this to take affect.

The Results:
