We intend to use master file profiles to arrange security to limit specific user to which data they can access. We have a web application that accesses WebFOCUS through the public user and security is arranged by an external shell and the specific user is passed to WebFOCUS through http headers and extracted and passed from WF client to Reporting Server through site.wfs.
The issue now is that site.wfs is only passing local variables to the Reporting Server through "sendvar" or "SET variable". On the other side the Master File Profile can only reference global variables. Does someone know a solution to this to pass variables via site.wfs to Master File Profile?

You will need to create a _site_profile fex and set the &variable to a &&variable in that fex. This fex needs to be stored in a app folder not the repository and in the client administration console under Client settings there is a Site Profile setting and you referenece your fex with -INCLUDE appfolder/fexname.fex. Once you save that I think you need to clear the cache using the administration console option.
Thank you for using Focal Point!
