Security in Management Reporter

Microsoft Office PerformancePoint 2007 Management Reporter security limits access to the program by requiring a password to log on and by restricting the tasks that a user can perform. One Management Reporter administrator is defined during the installation process. This Management Reporter administrator can log on to create other users and to assign a role to each user. The role assignments define each user's access to Management Reporter functions.

The following table lists the roles that are available in Management Reporter and describes the tasks that each role may perform.
