Questions about OData connection.
1.In the Web.config on the web player I do not see any difference in setting the ODataAdapter to “prompt” vs “ServiceAccount”. Can you please explain the difference?
--- Following are all the option explained
• WebConfig – select this to force all users that are accessing a specific analysis connect to the external data source using the username and password specified in the DataAdapterCredentials section described later in this chapter.
• Kerberos – select this if your system is configured to authenticate users with Kerberos.
• Prompt – select this to prompt the users for a username and password for the external data source.
• ServiceAccount – select this to make all users connect to the external data source using the computer account or dedicated user account that is used to run the application pool in IIS on the Spotfire Web Player server.
Is there any way to run a Web Player report that uses OData without having the user be forced to login?
--- For that your Spotfire and data source need to be configured for Kerberos.
To use none in authentication:
---- Use this public Odata service which is configured for none authentication https://open.whitehouse.gov/OData.svc To use none as authentication Odata service/data source has to be configured for none/no authentication.
