Shared Services

Shared Services functionality is programmed into products, such as Planning and Business Rules. Shared Services integrates the products to provide the following functionality:

User provisioning functionality is described in the Hyperion Security Administration Guide. External authentication is described in the Hyperion Shared Services Installation Guide. All other Shared Services functionality is described in the administrator's and user's guides for the products that implement Shared Services. Products that implement Shared Services functionality require access to a Shared Services server running Shared Services client and server software, and to a database dedicated to Shared Services.

Business Rules implements Shared Services user provisioning functionality. For more information on user provisioning for Business Rules, see the Business Rules product appendix in the Hyperion Security Administration Guide.
