PerformancePoint 2010 has some new settings that control how authentication to the data source itself is accomplished. You’ll find these options under the “Editor” tab for an individual data source:
If you were web administrator of a PerformancePoint 2007 instance you might recall a similar set of options provided by the Bpm.ServerConnectionPerUser and BPM.UseASCustomData web.config properties. With the above change:
- the options are configurable per-datasource, instead of per-webapp
- no web.config juggling is required
- there are no longer equivalent options in web.config
Please note that “Unattended Service Account” is separate from application pool identity. Unattended Service Account is a PerformancePoint service application setting.
