Figure 6-14. PerformancePoint Service Application Settings page
Secure Store and Unattended Service Account
The purpose of this section is to configure the unattended service account. Recall that this is the Active Directory
domain account that will be used when accessing data sources without using the user’s own identity (Kerberos).
The credentials for this account are stored in the Secure Store Service. See “Securing PerformancePoint Solutions”
earlier in this chapter.
This section of the page has three entry boxes. The first text box is used to identify the SSS application to be
used for the account’s credentials. The second and third boxes allow for the entry of the user name and password
of the account, respectively. Remember that this account should have minimal permissions but provide access
to all necessary data.
Each dashboard user can be given permission to add comments to the cells in a PPS scorecard. These comments
are then available to other users when they view that scorecard. The comment functionality also uses the term
“annotation.” Technically, a scorecard cell can have one annotation, and each annotation can have multiple comments.
This section of the page contains a check box that can be used to enable the annotation feature within the PPS
instance. There is also a setting that limits the number of annotations that can exist on a single scorecard. The default
is 1,000 annotations per scorecard.
There is also a “Delete Comments by” Date button shown in Figure 6-15 that displays a dialog box.
This dialog can be used to start a background job that will clean up comments older than a given date,
which can use useful if it becomes necessary to reclaim space in the SQL database associated with this
PPS instance. The name of this database is based on the name of the PPS application and a unique GUID,
like “PPS Application_d6430dcfa6de4086a84dcb1b0c39f78e.”
