E1: CAF1: Integrate with OBIEE In CafeOne - The Password Is Shown On The URL As Plain Text
Last updated on NOVEMBER 01, 2017
Applies to:JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools - Version 9.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
According to Composite Application Framework Guide, Chapter 126.96.36.199.3 _||_BI_PASSWORD_||_
You have two ways to supply the password for the Oracle BI user:
- Use a placeholder parameter (masked parameter) in the softcoding value and assign the value to the parameter in the grid. The above example used a placeholder parameter called BI_PASSWORD and defined the BI_PASSWORD variable in the grid. The _ | | _ prefix and postfix are markers for placeholder variables.
When used this way, the value is encrypted before it is saved into the database and is masked for future display.
- Use plain text directly in the softcoding value.
When going to the application where there is CafeOne content and clicking the popup icon of that OBIEE IFrame window, in the address bar of that popup window, the password will be shown even if you use the placeholder parameter.
