Here's another great tip from Alyson Powell Erwin in the PPS planning team.
When integrating PerformancePoint Planning with PerformancePoint Monitoring, you need to keep the following in mind:
The result of the above behaviors, is such that if you have created PerformancePoint Monitoring Scorecards and Dashboards, these cannot be transferred from one environment to another easily. In order to transfer scorecards and dashboards from a test environment to a production environment, you will have to recreate all KPIs, Parameters and Analytic Views so that the correct member unique keys are now stored in the new definitions.
This results in a great deal of rework and for this reason we are recommending the following when working in an integrated environment:
As an additional note, the planning team are currently working on a utility that can be used to migrate Monitoring dashboards based on Planning cubes from one environment to another – we hope to have it complete and available soon. However, as a best practice, we recommend the scenario outlined above for a smooth and seamless transition.
