When you write the following url on browser,

http://MyServer   (Local intranet)

you can reach BI Launch Pad on SAP BusinessObjects Server;


If the following steps are done:

  1. Port 80 should be redirected to 8080 as it is done on Redirecting from HTTP to HTTPS on SAP BusinessObjects Server
    <Connector port="80" protocol="HTTP/1.1" redirectPort="8080"/>
  2. Open and Edit “\SAPBO\tomcat\webapps\ROOT\index.jsp” file
  3. Add the following line to the file.
    <% response.sendRedirect("/BOE/BI"); %>
    • If there is not SSL configuration, you should add the following line
      <% response.sendRedirect("/BOE/BI"); %>
    • If there is a SSL configuration and Redirecting from HTTP to HTTPS, you should add the following line in order to prevent SSL warning.
      String url = request.getRequestURL().toString(); 
      if ( url.equals("https://MyServer:8443/") ) {
          response.sendRedirect("https://MyServer.MyDomain.com:8443/BOE/BI"); } 
      else {
          response.sendRedirect("/BOE/BI"); };
  4. Save the file. (No need to restarting to Tomcat Server)
