Continuing to Use Essbase in Native Security Mode

For Essbase Servers, you can continue to use Essbase native authentication if you want to continue managing users and groups as you did in previous releases. In Essbase native security mode, you continue to manage users through Administration Services Console. You can continue to create native and external users as you did before.

If you plan to use external authentication in Essbase native security mode, you must configure external authentication through Shared Services. See Using EPM System Security for External Authentication in Essbase Native Security Mode.
