Integrating PerformancePoint 2007 into MOSS

Being new to PerformancePoint 2007, it wasn't immediately apparent to me how to integrate it into MOSS. I found that you do this by installing the Dashboard Viewer for SharePoint Services on the MOSS server.

Prerequisites on MOSS Server
  • Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0 AJAX Extensions 1.0
  1. Mount the PerformancePoint 2007 media in the MOSS server.
  2. Choose the Monitoring Server installation and complete it.
  3. Run the Monitoring Server Configuration Manager.
  4. Uncheck all options except for the Dashboard Viewer for SharePoint Services.
  5. Select the site collection in which to install the Dashboard Viewer.
If you need to later install the Dashboard Viewer web part on an additional site collection, this post has an excellent guide to doing so. In step 2 where the author references uploading the master page, I did this differently:
  • Navigated to http:///_catalogs/masterpage/Forms/AllItems.aspx, and clicked the Upload button.
  • Browsed to %programfiles%\Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server\3.0\Monitoring\Assemblies\ and chose PerformancePointDefault.master.
  • Once uploaded, used the context menu on the uploaded master page and used the Approve/Reject link to approve the uploaded item.
