Data Administrator role

PerformancePoint Server 2007

Updated: 2008-11-14

In addition to the data management, workflow process, and security tasks that members of the Modeler role can perform in Planning Business Modeler, members of the Data Administrator role can also perform data integration tasks.

The following considerations apply to the Data Administrator role:

  • Users who are assigned to the Data Administrator role have unrestricted access to all business data within their scope, even if they belong to a business role that has restricted settings.

  • Assigning a member to the Data Administrator role does not guarantee explicit permissions to the staging and application database to perform all necessary tasks for data integration. For more information, see PerformancePoint Server Data Integration Help.

  • For security reasons, work performed by Data Administrator role members should be carefully reviewed, because those users can browse databases. We recommend that Data Administrator role members do not have full database permissions unless it is necessary.

  • Members of the Data Administrator role cannot create or delete applications or model sites or manage role membership.

On the Data Administrator Role page, users who currently belong to the role are listed in the User ID column next to the appropriate application or model site. Except for the Global Administrator role, which has system-wide scope, Planning Server administrator roles have either an application scope or a model-site scope. Application scope permissions apply for all model sites in an application. Model-site scope permissions apply only for the specific model site.

You must belong to the User Administrator role to add users to or remove users from the Data Administrator role. Before you can add a user to any Planning Server role, the user must first be added to Planning Server from the Users page.

To add a user to the Data Administrator role

  1. On the Data Administrator Role page, select the scope of the role.

    • To add a user who has application scope permissions, under Data Administrator Role: Applications, select the appropriate application.

    • To add a user who has model-site scope permissions, under Data Administrator Role: Model Sites, select the appropriate application in the drop-down list, and then select the appropriate model site.

  2. Click Add/Remove Users. The Add or Remove Users: Data Administrator Role dialog box opens.

  3. In the text box next to the Add button, type the user ID of the person whom you want to add to the role. The user ID must be entered in the domain\user name format.

  4. Click Add.

  5. When you are finished adding users, click Close.

To remove a user from the Data Administrator role

  1. On the Data Administrator Role page, select the scope of the role.

    • To remove a user who has application scope permissions, under Data Administrator Role: Applications, select the appropriate application.

    • To remove a user who has model-site scope permissions, under Data Administrator Role: Model Sites, select the appropriate application in the drop-down list, and then select the appropriate model site.

  2. Click Add/Remove Users. The Add or Remove Users: Data Administrator Role dialog box opens.

  3. Select the check box next to the user who you want to remove from the role.
