OBIEE: How To Hide the NQuser And NQPassword in an OBIEE 10g Go URL or OBIEE 11g Action Link (Doc ID 1517962.1)

Applies to:

Business Intelligence Server Enterprise Edition - Version 10.1.3.4.2 [2405] and later
Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition - Version 10.1.3.4.2 [2405] and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

You are trying to make use of the Go URL to integrate an OBIEE 10g dashboard with a external portal. In the portal is an HTML link; for example:

http://machinename:9704/analytics/saw.dll?Dashboard&NQuser=Administrator&NQPassword=Password

The integration works. But the user name and password are being sent as plain text. Is there a way to hide or encrypt the NQPassword in OBIEE?
