PMF interacts with ReportCaster in two ways.
The WebFOCUS Reporting server is accessed from the WebFOCUS client when a user runs a report or panel interactively, from ReportCaster when a schedule is executed, and from itself when a currently running report or panel executes another report.
PMF uses MR users and groups as a standard delivered authentication security, but is fully compatible with all security models that WebFOCUS supports. PMF is a WebFOCUS application and will conform to security models the same way any other WebFOCUS application conforms.
When using WebFOCUS BID as the front end portal, or OPS using another common portal, such as SharePoint, SAP NetWeaver, or WebSphere, portal content needs to come from the MR Repository. PMF adds a domain to the MR Repository that contains content to populate the portal.
