Creating and Refreshing Applications

Administrators create and periodically refresh the Essbase outline and security structure for the Planning application. The outline and security structure are created based on metadata stored in the Planning application’s relational database. Planning creates:

  • An Essbase application

  • Multiple Essbase databases (one per plan type)

  • Essbase access permissions filters

  • Essbase outlines (all metadata):

    • Members

    • Shared members

    • User-defined attributes and attribute values

    • Exchange rates
