An error I ran recently across was the following. After creating a new SharePoint Server 2010 web application, I tried to activate the PerformancePoint Site Features. At first sight, everything seemed to be done in the correct order:
- PerformancePoint Service Application running
- Secure Store Service Application running
- Connection for PPS and SSS to my web application
- Site Collection created
I went on to my web application, then under:
Site Actions –> Site Settings –> Site Actions –> Manage site features
There I tried to activate the PerformancePoint Services Site Features. Tried. And failed. It failed with the following error messages:
So, the first message gave already a good hint. Off I went for the site collection features:
Site Actions –> Site Settings –> Site Collection Administration–> Site Collection Features
There, I had to enable both:
- SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure and
- PerformancePoint Services Site Collection Features
That did the trick! Now, returning to the site features, I was able to enable the PerformancePoint Services Site Features, and finally could create also KPIs, Scorecards and Dashboards.
More options for content creation after PerformancePoint Services have been enabled.
I hope this helps some of you with the same problem!
