In my organization, we're hoping to have one or two individuals build BIRT reports and then share them with other users who run the BIRT report. However, these users need to run the report using their credentials instead of the credentials of the report designer.

I know that the end users could modify the data source to enter their own username/password. However, that process is a bit complicated for non-technical users.

Is there any way to save a BIRT report so that it prompts the user for the username/password to be used?

Note - All of my end users have different username/passwords which grant them varying levels of access.

If you look at the property binding tab of the dataSource, you'll see that you can use the expression builder to specify the username and password. You could create report parameters that would take the user's input and pass it through, in these expressions.
