PerformancePoint Services – Error 5 – Unattended Service Account required

Today I came across the below error and how to fix it.

  1. Open “Central Admin Manage Service Applications Performance Point”
  2. Open “PerformancePoint Service Application Settings”
  3. Below “Secure Store and Unattended Service Account” specify a user name and password for PPS to use for opening data sources.
  4. Click OK.   Close the Dashboard Designer application and come back in clean.   It should work just fine now.  Hot
