How to avoid IE pop-ups when running BIP reports(w/ SSO) from Oracle Forms?

Advertisement

Hi all,
We have an OID/SSO integrated Oracle Forms and BI Publisher environment in place. We/users expect the same behavior when running Oracle Reports or BIP reports from Oracle Forms... which means receiving no intermediate pop-ups and simply getting the report output to appear in the relevant target application(PDF, EXCEL, etc). Currently we get multiple security warnings when running BIP reports from Oracle Forms.
Here's a list of Pop-ups contents:
1. "File Download - Security Warning" Do you want to open or save this file? -> OPEN
2. "File Download" Do you want to save this file? Name = ma01r500.pdf -> YES
3. "Save AS" -> pick desktop and save.
4. "Download Complete" -> OPEN
We have experimented with setting various IE security settings to LOW/enabled and still get these pop-ups.
Any suggestions is much appreciated.
Thanks,
Yahya

FYI... Metalink Note 282996.1 has resolved the bigger issue with the extra pop-ups with SSO enabled environment.
Cause:
Internet Explorer (IE) has to cache PDF files in a temporary directory prior to opening the file. Without this IE cannot process PDF files. With SSO protected pages, the header cache settings are set to no-cache which prevents IE from downloading PDF files.
Solution:
In mod_osso.conf use the entry "OssoSendCacheHeaders off" which tells mod_osso to turn off all no-cache related headers, which the enables Internet Explorer to be cache the file in a temporary directory.
Now I am not sure if anybody has any thoughts/suggestions as how we might be able to resolve this issue where Oracle Reports WEB.SHOW_DOCUMENT calls have no pop-ups so ideally BIP reports WEB.SHOW_DOCUMENT calls should behave the same as both are calls from Oracle Forms.
But at least now our SSO enabled environment and un-secure DEV/UAT behave the same with a single pop-up. Ideally the users shouldn't have to come across this intermediate pop-up to open(save/cancel being the other options) the document(just like Oracle Reports calls).
