Hide SAP Design Studio additional files from end users


My question is - how can we hide all additional SAP Design Studio files (CSS, images, fonts etc.) from end users in the BI Launch Pad but at the same time let them open, use and refresh the SAP Design Studio dashboard?

We are using SAP Design Studio 1.4 together with SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.1 SP05 platform. After creating a SAP Design Studio dashboard we are saving it into BI Launch Pad together with all supporting files like custom CSS, images etc. and also MIME folder which is created in the BI Launch Pad near the saved SAP Design Studio dashboard. I have noticed that if an end user have access rights to those supporting files he/she can successfully open and refresh a SAP Design Studio dashboard. But if we revoke access to these supporting files from an end user then in this case when he/she tries to open the SAP Design Studio dashboard an error "cannot open a web page" appears.

We have a requirement to hide those custom CSS, images and other supporting SAP Design Studio files from an end user. How can we achieve this?

Thank you in advance.

Best regards,

Hello Donatas,

You can find the root Folder of tomcat on the Server in following path:


When you place an Image there, lets say "image1.jpg", then you can access it like this: http://<boserver>:<port>/image1.jpg

Best regards,
