Information in this document applies to any platform.
There is information about the Oracle Reports Credential Store which can be managed over the Enterprise Manager console. It can savely store username/password key pairs. The question is now, if it is possible to store the username/password for a database login in this credential store which then can be used in a Report to automatically to log in to the database ?
When not having Single Sign On and OID the alternative is that database username/password is stored for the automatic logon in the cgicmd.dat file, which is stored there un-encrypted.
When having Single Sign On and OID the alternative is to store database credentials in a RAD in OID and pass them to the report request via SSOCONN parameter.
