after one month of hard work and a very complex report deployed to production server, someone (my boss) asked out of the blue for security credentials: "I need user & pass asked prior to any data is delivered. I need secured connections"
Taking a deep breath (changing requirements when the project is in production drives me nuts) now I'm trying to implement user&pass parameters but....(There is always a "but") if i use property binding for user&pass on the datasource the first combo-box asking for the "continent" parameter of my report is blank, driving to a beautiful error.
Making the long story short, my report is made from two hyperlinked reports. On the first one you choose "continent" and a summarized view for the company figures on that part of the world, and there's a link to the second report. When clicking on that link, second report is rendered with the continent parameter passed via URL. Then you choose "country" (second combo-box) for all the countries belonging to that continent.
Creating other DataConnection just for rendering the "continents" combo-box is a "quick and dirty" workaround but security is compromised anyway.
how could this be done having said that my two reports use 45 datasets each (so creating every dataset from scratch is not an option)?
In addition to this, how can be warned the user that user&password combination is not valid instead of that ugly error dialog that Birt Engine delivers?
