The Unattended Service Account Application ID is not specified

Wednesday, April 19, 2017 - by Keith A. Smith

The Unattended Service Account Application ID is not specified or has an invalid value.

    •    The Unattended Service Account Application ID is not specified or has an invalid value.

1) Go to Central Administration | Application Management | Manage service applications | Visio Graphics Service | Global Settings 
2) Check the Application ID under Unattended Service Account 
3) You should have entered an application Id here, if not create a Secure Store Target Application of type Group and then enter its Target Application ID for Visio Graphics Account.

To create a new secure store target application go to Central Administration | Application Management | Manage service applications | Secure Store Service

This error showed up on the Monitoring > Health Analyzer of my SharePoint 2010 VM.   Apparently after using the wizard to create a new farm, you must double back to supply Visio Services with user credentials for remote data connections.
http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepoint2010general/thread/559f72a4-d9ca-4004-b5ca-a0fa6dbad51f was a helpful reference on the steps.

Steps Taken:
    •    Open Health Analyzer and view details
    •    Manage the Visio Graphics Service (SA) and confirm Application ID is empty.
    •    Manage the Secure Store Service (SA) and Generate New Key
    •    Create a New Target Application
    •    Provide a unique ID, name, and contact email. Select Group Type.
    •    Accept default and just click Next
    •    Provide a user name for both fields.  I used “DEMOAdmin” as that is the only user on this machine. Click OK.
    •    Enter the Target Application ID back on the Visio Graphics Service (SA) page and click OK.
    •    Go to the Health Analyzer rule, open it and click Reanalyze Now, then you should be ready to go.
