I would like to know a way where we can ENCRYPT the password field with **** in InfoAssist+.
Scenario: I have created a Reporting Object off of which I have created Auto Prompt Reports. When I run the report I enter the User ID and Password. I want the Password to be masked and appear as ASTERISK while entering instead of showing the actual password.
Any suggestion in this regards will be highly appreciated.

Yes FRANS, user is already logged in. But, these reports will be accessed by a group of users and not individuals therefore, they will be using user id & password to access the reports (Generic credentials for the DB). Just to maintain the security we wanted a mechanism to mask the password field.
these reports will be accessed by a group of users
This is a PERFECT candidate for WF Security Center Group policy. No need to have a password protection on top of a already authenticated id/password.
Create a Group in Security Center and add the specific users to it. Then have your "special" report rule "List and Run" set only to the above group.This message has been edited. Last edited by: MartinY,
