During Configuring the Excel Service in SharePoint Server 2013, I have created a separate domain account to run the Excel Services application pool that has been registered to the Managed Account within Central administration.
The previous step is not sufficient to configure Excel Service, as its prerequisites, you must grant access to the SharePoint content database for the account that will be used to run the Excel Services application pool, and to achieve that follow the mentioned steps below:
- Navigate to the SharePoint Application Server that will be associated with Excel Services.
- Open SharePoint 2013 Management Shell as Administrator.
- Type the following command with your entry.
$w = Get-SPWebApplication -identity http://<WebApplication> $w.GrantAccessToProcessIdentity("<Domain>\<Username>")
Note : If you intend to add additional content databases in the future, you must repeate these cmdlets for each new one to ensure that Excel Services has accessd to each new databases.
You can now continue to configure Excel Service in SharePoint 2013.
