Dashboard Designer: SharePoint Location Does Not Allow Data Sources RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    I have Dashboard Designer installed via the download on a BI Site, but everything is greyed out. In the Workspace Browser, it states that it is "loading..." but has loaded anything. When I sroll over the greyed out items such as Data Source it states:

    "This command is disabled because this SharePoint location does not allow data sources."

    I get the same error for Dashboard, Scorecard, KPI, and Filter where it states it does not allow "Filters", etc.

    Any ideas of what is going on? I checked Central Admin and Performance Point is set to allow all data sources. Could this be related to the Unattended Service Account?

    Thanks!

  • Found it! I have to create a BI Site and enter the URL of the BI site in my connection. I thought that you could use PerformancePoint without creating a BI site. Does anyone know if that is true?

  • I had a similar problem, though just with the Data Source.  I created a new list of type 'DataConnections Library for PerformancePoint' and after firing up the Dashboard Designer anew, I got the option to create Data Sources.

     

    I had already created a PerformancePoint Content List, maybe if that is missing you get the other Dashboard content greyed out in the designer.

     

    HTH,
