Each time a user launches SAP BusinessObjects Explorer for iOS, they are prompted for an application password, as shown in this screen shot from Explorer for iOS 4.1.5 running on an iPhone 5.
Although a BI 4.0 administrator can disable the password requirement for SAP BusinessObjects Mobile BI for iOS from the business intelligence platform, there is presently no equivalent control for Explorer for iOS. However, it is possible to instruct the app to enable or disable the password requirement using special bookmarks opened from the Safari iOS browser.
To disable the password, click on sboexplorer://settings?use_password=0. When the Explorer app launches, you’ll be asked to enter your password one more time.
To enable the password, click on sboexplorer://settings?use_password=1. When the Explorer app launches, you’ll be asked to enter (twice) a new application password.
These instructions do not currently appear in the SAP BusinessObjects Explorer for iPhone/iPad User Guide 4.1.5 or What’s New guide but are documented in SAP Support Notes 1759354 and 1759809. If you are going to disable the application-level password, it is strongly encouraged that you set a device-level password on your iPhone or iPad to prevent unauthorized access to sensitive corporate data.
