The reports of a normal SSAS solution can be used by a single end user as different ROLES e.g. a single user can be Key Account Manager (KAM), he can also be a Sales Manager (SM). The client may askfor a solution where a single user can do the reporting using only one role at a time in Excel. Let’s take an example to explain the scenario

If the SSAS solution has 2 dimensions Product & Company. The Sales amount for the products & company is as below

Figure 1

Client says, dimension security should be applied for KAM as below (allow Product A and Company C)

Figure 2For SM as below (allow Product A & Company A, B)

Figure 3

Now the client says that Product A with all 3 companies (Company A, B, C) is a critical combination and no user should be permitted to see them together. Now if the user doesn’t have any option to choose a single profile then by virtue of SSAS default behavior, he will see the below content and by this he is permitted tosee critical combination.

Figure 4

If the client is using SSRS then it is possible to force the user to select at least one role (KAM or SM) as a report parameter. If the reporting is done using EXCEL 2007 then the user can use the ROLES property of its connection string and work with only one role at a time (User will have to pass the physical SSAS role name denoting either KAM or...
