Summary:  Learn how to limit PerformancePoint Services features that use trusted locations by allowing only designated sites, lists or document libraries rather than the entire site collection.

After you enable a feature on a site collection in SharePoint Server 2013, the content types or PerformancePoint Services objects are made available for others to use on any site within that site collection. An administrator may want to limit PerformancePoint Services features that use trusted locations by allowing one or more sites, lists, or document libraries rather than an entire site collection. In this way the administrator can limit use of PerformancePoint Services to specific locations in the farm to prevent unauthorized access to data sources. See To add a trusted data source location.

NoteNote:
Because SharePoint 2013 runs as websites in Internet Information Services (IIS), administrators and users depend on the accessibility features that browsers provide. SharePoint 2013 supports the accessibility features of supported browsers. For more information, see the following resources:

You can specify locations in SharePoint Server where dashboard content and data sources are secured. The default is to trust all locations, but administrators can specify other trusted locations.

  • PerformancePoint Content List: A PerformancePoint Content List stores the elements that are used to construct a dashboard. A PerformancePoint Services dashboard is a related group of interactive scorecards, filters, and report views organized into a set of Web pages.

  • PerformancePoint Data Source Library: A PerformancePoint Data Source Library contains data-source definitions that identify a source of business data. It may include cubes or perspectives based on online analytical processing (OLAP) cubes, relational databases, CSV files, and Microsoft Excel Services worksheets.

  • Trusted Data Sources and Trusted Content Locations: When you navigate to either Trusted Data Sources or Trusted Content Locations pages from the Manage PerformancePoint Services page, there are two option buttons. When the Only specific locations option button is selected, the list of trusted locations is enabled. For data source or content locations, if there are no items in the list, only the toolbar button is enabled. When one or more items are listed, the Edit and Delete buttons are enabled.

    The URL you type is checked for a valid site collection, site, document library, and list. Option buttons are enabled or disabled depending on the type of site. Validation depends on whether your URL is a valid site and/or already exists.

CautionCaution:
The default for a trusted data source and trusted content locations is to trust all.
