In this post I document the steps required to configure the Import Application feature introduced in HFM 126.96.36.199.200. I recommend reading my earlier post about the Patch Set Update if you haven't done that already. Note that the configuration is database vendor specific and I used MS SQL Server – if you need guidance for setting things up with an Oracle database you can see Larry Lapp's recent blog post about the same topic.
- HFM with Patch Set Update 188.8.131.52.200 (patch number 21225611) installed
- Access to SQL Server Management Studio with sysadmin privileges
- SYSADMIN role granted to the SQL login used by HFM (Yes – the almighty sysadmin role. This requirement is documented as known issue #21032270 in the PSU .200 readme)
