    thanks for wonderful and detailed blog, we have implemented the same at our client, however we have are facing some issues to meet the business team requirements.

    When we create a WebIntelligence report using the iview integration kit and preview it form the Portal.

    We are not able to see the History of the report and last instance option on the right click.

    When you access your reports via the infoview. After selecting the report, when you right click you get multiple options such as - view, last instance, history etc.

    Is there anyway we can single sign on to the infoview from portal opening a default folder with the web intelligence reports using a URL Iview. This way users can see the options when the right click on the report.

    The right click (client action) is only available through the KM : knowledge Management.

    Same thing : you can access directly to a specific folder only with the KM : I will update the wiki wiht this information. 

    Otherwise you can access to a specific report directly (no navigation) and view the last instance (only the last instance - not the history) with the URL iView.
