Summary: Learn how to configure the Reporting solution in Duet Enterprise 2.0 in a SharePoint Server 2013 environment.

The Reporting solution in Duet Enterprise for Microsoft SharePoint and SAP Server 2.0 must be configured before it can be used by administrators or users. In earlier procedures, you have imported the Reporting Business Data Connectivity (BDC) model and have confirmed that it is functioning correctly. The following procedures enable site collection and site-level features so that the Reporting solution can be used.

In this article:

Duet Enterprise reporting requires the Duet Enterprise Reports Content Types feature to be enabled in the site collection. This feature is enabled for all subsites in the site collection.

To enable the Reporting solution on the site collection
  1. Verify that you have the following administrative credentials: Farm Administrators SharePoint group and a member of the Windows Administrators group on the server that is running the SharePoint Central Administration website.
