    Support Matrix - Essbase associated database

    Robert Angel




      In terms of the databases that you can use as the security / metadata database am I correct in saying that it is only Oracle or sqlserver?


      The reason I ask is the use of 'datasource' in the support matrix, does this purely mean as a source of metadata / transactional / balance data to load into Essbase cubes?


      As opposed to the repository which is the database that must be configured on the initial Essbase install?



      Do I understand this correctly, repository = mandatory database, data source = optional database to feed rules data instead of files



      thanks again,
