Crystal Enterprise Web Desktop

Upon clicking the Crystal Enterprise Web Desktop link, the user is logged onto Crystal Enterprise with a Guest account. This means that the user has whatever rights the Guest account has been granted. This functionality enables anonymous logon to the enterprise system. A common usage scenario is if reports need to be delivered via an extranet system and the administrator does not want to establish an account for every user accessing the system; the Guest account could allow for this. This account can be disabled if you want by using the Crystal Management Console as described in Chapter 27, “Administering and Configuring Crystal Enterprise.” If the Guest account is disabled, the user is taken directly to the logon screen. Alternatively, the user can log on by clicking the logon icon shown in Figure 23.2.
