Developer Studio includes:
The user ID wfdesktop without a password allows full development against Developer Studio. User ID admin with password admin provides administrative tasks, such as access to the WebFOCUS Administration Console and Security Center.
When connecting to a WebFOCUS Environment, the user ID wfdesktop allows self-service development: development from the Projects, Data Servers, and Web Applications area. Access to the Repository is restricted and users cannot create new content with this user ID. The user ID admin has full control to all development areas.
To connect to a WebFOCUS environment or to the local WebFOCUS Client that is included with Developer Studio, a connection to WebFOCUS is required.
For Developer Studio stand-alone installations (no WebFOCUS on the same machine), when Developer Studio first starts, the user ID admin is used to connect to WebFOCUS and it is stored in the localhost environment properties. This configuration is done during the installation process. The Security Center that is available with Developer Studio provides the capability to change user passwords. Other tasks, such as the creation or removal of existing user IDs, management of Roles, and other privileges, are not permitted.
Note: If a user is not allowed to connect from Developer Studio to a WebFOCUS environment to perform development, a message will get presented to the user with related information. Users can be restricted from accessing WebFOCUS from Developer Studio if the group they belong to does not have the Desktop Connect privilege. This privilege is available by default in the WF_DesktopConnect Role. To allow connections from Developer Studio to WebFOCUS, ensure the above role or a different role contains the Desktop Connect privilege and is applied to the group where the user is assigned. Users that belong to the Administrators or WF_Global_Roles/DesktopSelfService groups are already given the permission to connect to WebFOCUS. Users that belong to the Administrators group have full control and no restrictions.
The Change Password dialog box appears.
Users have access to the Security Center if they sign in using an Administrator account.
Developer Studio processes requests the same way that WebFOCUS does. To access WebFOCUS or a remote Reporting Server, Developer Studio calls a Servlet on a remote web server.
The same processing occurs when using the local WebFOCUS Client and Reporting Server installed with Developer Studio. Developer Studio connects to its local client and the local Reporting Server through a local web server using the servlet. Therefore, to run reports locally, a web server is required on your machine.
