Confidential category

Hi there,


we just started using the new iPad App 4.1.0 in combination with XI 3.1 SP5. We read about the new confidential section, but in the documentation I could not find an example how to declare this section in the mobi.properties file. There are no given examples, any ideas about how to set up this category?

    Hi Mirko,

    Thanks for your query and for pointing this out!

    Here is the answer:


    In the default configuration of the "mobi.properties" file (which is shipped with the Mobile server), you must have found the following settings for iPad:




    The line highlighted in the above snippet defines a secure category.

    As per the above snippet, you should create a category with the name "Confidential" in your Web Intelligence report designing tool, and assign your documents to this category. This will make the documents secured.
    If for some reason, you want to give a different name to the category in Web Intelligence (for example, "Secured"), you should update the mobi.properties for the same line of code:


    for example:


    The same concept applies to the Mobile and Mobile Designed categories. If you rename these categories in report designing tool, you should update the correspondng lines in mobi.properties:

    Best practice is to use the same names as specified in default settings of the mobi.properties file.


    Note: Secure and MobileDesigned categories should be created only as a Corporate category in report designing tool. They cannot be "Personal".


    Let me know if anything is unclear.
