Working with users in Management Reporter (PerformancePoint Server)

The available methods for authenticating a new user are as follows:

  • Windows authentication

    Uses the local domain and users assigned to the local computer or network. This method is helpful if each user logs on to a Windows domain with a unique account. With this method, the user does not have to learn a new user name and password to log on to Microsoft Office PerformancePoint 2007 Management Reporter. With Windows authentication, the Management Reporter administrator does not have to reset passwords for users.

  • Application authentication

    Uses a unique user name and password for logging on toManagement Reporter only. This method is useful in cases when multiple users log on to one computer by using the same account and password and in cases when Management Reporter users are not part of the domain.
