Specify a different user account for reporting (Duet Enterprise)
Applies to: Duet Enterprise for Microsoft SharePoint and SAP
This article describes how to add a new user account to the Duet Enterprise for Microsoft SharePoint and SAP Reporting site. The Reporting site is in Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 and communicates with the SAP system for Duet Enterprise.
Reporting site user account
When you first setup Duet Enterprise reporting on SharePoint Server 2010 you grant full control permissions to a user account to authenticate reports and workflow transactions from the SAP system. If the user account is no longer valid, the administrator must change the account. To change the user account for the Duet Enterprise Reporting site, follow this procedure.
You must be a member of the Reporting site administrators group or the site owner to perform this procedure.
To change the Reporting site user account
In Central Administration, in the Application Management group, click Manage web applications.
In the Name column on the Web Applications tab of the Ribbon, select the Web application that exists for this reporting site, and then in the Policy section of the Ribbon, click User Policy.
On the Policy for Web Applications page, select the check box for the user account that you want to remove, and then click Delete Selected Users.
Click Add Users.
On the Add Users page, select All Zones in the Zones drop-down list, and then click Next.
On the Add Users page, in the Users box, type the account of the user who you want to use to authenticate report and workflow transactions from the SAP environment, in the form of DomainName\UserName.
This user account and password will be given to the SAP administrator to use as the Report Publisher Account on the SAP environment. Because of this, we recommend that you create an account specifically for this purpose instead of using an individual's user account.
In the Choose Permissions section, select the Full Control - Has full control check box.
Click Finish, to save the new user account and close the page.
The user account that you have added appears on the Policy for Web Application page. Click OK to close the Policy for Web Application page.
Configure the DuetConfig.exe.config file for reporting
If you have already created a Report Publisher account and assigned a user profile to this account but now have to change this user profile, follow these steps.
You must be a member of the SharePoint farm administrators group to complete this procedure.
To configure the DuetConfig.exe.config file for reporting
Open a Command Prompt window and go to: <Drive>:\Program Files\Duet Enterprise\1.0.Where <Drive> is the drive on which the Duet Enterprise files are stored.
At the prompt type, notepad DuetConfig.exe.config and press Enter.
In the DuetConfig.exe.config file, add a new value for the ReportPublisherAccount key. The following is a snippet of the Reporting node in the DuetConfig.exe.config file:
<Reporting> <add key="ReportPublisherAccount" value="NotSet" /> <add key="ReportPublishingUrl" value="NotSet"/> </Reporting>
For the value of ReportPublisherAccount, type the account name you want to use to authorize reports to be sent from the SAP environment to SharePoint Server 2010. This is the account that you granted Full Control permissions to in the “Set a user Policy on the new Web application” section in the Microsoft Duet Enterprise Deployment Guide. This must be in the form of DomainName\UserAccount. You must provide this account to the SAP administrator.
For the value of ReportPublisherAccount, type the account name that you want to use to authorize reports to be sent from the SAP environment to SharePoint Server 2010. This must be in the form of DomainName\UserAccount. You must provide this account to the SAP administrator. If you configured the Reporting solution on a Web application during deployment, the user account that you used during deployment will already be set in this key and recorded in the “Report publisher account" row of Table 3 of the Deployment worksheet (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=205392). For more information, see the "Configure reporting" table in Administrative and service accounts and certificates required for deployment (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=205819).
If you will create a reporting site in a different web application than the one that was created during deployment, change the value of the ReportPublishingUrl key to the URL and port number of the SSL enabled zone of the web application for the new reporting site. For example, https://contoso:443.
Save and close the DuetConfig.exe.config file.
