“During the testing phase of most Planning implementations, developers need to create test user accounts. I typically create at least one test user for each security group so I can verify that the correct access has been assigned. With an on-premises Hyperion Planning implementation, this is easy – simply create user ID’s in the Shared Services native directory. With PBCS, creating bulk test ID’s can be difficult, as each user ID requires a unique e-mail address. If you need 50 test users, should you create 50 fake/temporary e-mail accounts? Luckily the answer is no.”
