I was setting up some BDC models in SharePoint 2010 which involves managing authorization levels for BDC Metadata Store.

In Central Admin – BDC Service – Set Metadata Store Permissions

Add an user and the Permissions box will be populated with different authorization roles. Initially I couldn’t find any documentation on these roles.




So, after some digging around, here it is:


Edit – Create, delete, and Update metadata for BCS

Execute – Permission to make a call to an external system

Selectable in Clients – If you need to provide users with access to utilities like entity picker

Set Permissions – Gives the current user the ability to grant rights to other users.

Philadelphia SharePoint community holds SharePoint Saturday events once or twice per year. On May 8, 2010, it will be a full day of SharePoint.

My session covers BI features with SharePoint

The session will demonstrate BI capabilities of SharePoint that include dashboards, Visio services, excel services, Performance point, and new BI controls in SharePoint 2010.  I will walk the audience through the steps of creating KPIs, score cards and publishing them to SharePoint plus demonstrate SQL Server connected Visio diagrams. 

 See you there!
