For more information, see Authentication using Signons. Authentication using Signons When you want to store and maintain credentials to authenticate to Microsoft Analysis Services data sources in IBM Cognos software, use a signon when you create the data source. You can define a signon which is used by everyone default or you can grant access to specific users. You can also create multiple signons and use permissions to grant access for specified users, groups or roles.

The signon stores valid Windows domain credentials, which are used to authenticate to Analysis Services. IBM Cognos users must be granted read and execute permission for that signon.

How to build a cube from scratch using SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS)

Authentication using Service Credentials When you want to use the credentials of the account that is executing the IBM Cognos service to authenticate to Microsoft Analysis Services, use service credentials.

Every connection to Microsoft Analysis Services data sources uses the service credentials regardless of which user executes the request. The service must be run as a valid Windows domain user.

The built-in accounts of LocalSystem or NetworkService are not applicable.

The account running the IBM Cognos service must fulfill the following requirements: The account must either be a member of the same Active Directory Forest as Analysis Services or Forest trust must be established for cross-forest setups. The account must be granted the Log on as a service privilege in the local security policy of all Windows computers running IBM Cognos Application Tier components For multi-node setups, the same account must be used on all computers running IBM Cognos Application Tier components.

For Microsoft Analysis Services and , the service account must be granted sufficient privileges in SSAS security to attach to the desired cubes and retrieve data. Authentication using an External Namespace If you want IBM Cognos users to access Microsoft Analysis Services data sources with their own credentials user pass-through authentication, signon , use an external namespace.

The credentials that are used to authenticate to Analysis Services are taken from the specified namespace to which the user authenticated previously.

The credentials provided by a user who is logged on to the namespace are passed to Analysis Services. Due to the authentication methods supported by Analysis Services, you can only choose a namespace of type Microsoft Active Directory. Depending on how the user is authenticated to the Active Directory namespace specified for external namespace authentication, you can have the following sign-on setups that provide a seamless user experience: If a user authenticated explicitly by providing a domain user name and a password, pass-through authentication is possible.

The domain credentials that are provided are passed to Analysis Services. If a user authenticated to the Active Directory namespace by a signon which is not based on Kerberos, user pass-through authentication is not possible.

This applies to setups where the Active Directory Namespace is configured for identity mapping mode. Pass-through authentication is not supported for Windows XP. We will create reports about the fact information combined with 2 dimensions: currency sales territory The Currency dimension, will help us to detect amounts in different currencies around the world and Sales territory will help to detect sales, discounts, etc.

We will create now the views.

In this process, we will select the tables to be included in the cube. These dimensions include information about sales regions and currencies: Once the wizard is completed, press finish: As you can see, the fact table and the dimensions have a relationship.

If the common columns are equal, the relationships are detected automatically: To create a cube, we will add dimensions to the cube. In the Solution Explorer, right click and select New Dimension: You can create a dimension based on templates, time tables or based on existing tables.

Select the option Use an existing table: Select DimCurrency as the main table. By default, the key column is currency key: In available attributes, select currency name: In the Completing the Wizard step, press finish: Now, you will have a dimension created like this one.

Drag and drop the Currency Name from the attributes pane to Hierarchy: Once that you have the first dimension created, Currency name, we will create the sales territory dimension. In solution explorer, right click Dimensions and select New dimension: Select the option use an existing table: Select the table dimsalesterritory: Select the attributes that you want to be browsable in the reports: Once that the wizard is completed, press finish: In the new dimension created, click the process icon to process the dimension.

The process will generate the structure and load data to the dimension from the SQL Server table: Press run to process the dimension: In the Process Progress, close the process once that the process is succeed: You can refresh the dimension to view the dimension just processed: Process the Dim currency dimension also: Once processed, you can verify in the Browser tab: We will now create the cube.

Measure group tables are used to include the table with data to measure. A measure can be the number of sales, amount sold, freight, etc.

We will uncheck the keys and check the other attributes to measure: Select the dimensions that you want to add to the cube: You can also add the fact table as a dimension degenerate dimension. In this example, we will not add it: Once that the cube is created, press finish: You will have the cube created with the fact table in yellow and the dimensions in blue. Press the process icon to process the cube: In Process Cube, press run to process the cube: Once processed, go to the browser: Press the refresh icon: Drag and drop some measures from the Measure Group to the design pane: Now drag and drop the currency name to the graph pane, you will be able to see the measures grouped by currency: Drag and drop the Sales Territory Country.

You will now be able to see the measures grouped by currency and territory: Conclusion In this article, we learned how to create a cube in SSAS.This database is one of the samples that's available with SQL Server.

For more information, see Authentication using Service Credentials To use an external namespace, select An external namespace and select a namespace. Right-click on the hierarchy and rename it to Calendar.

This will be the fact table in the new cube. To deploy and process your cube, follow these steps:. You still need to deploy this structure to an Analysis Services server and the cube to create the aggregates that make querying fast and easy.

Schema Fact tables and dimension tables are related, which is hardly surprising, given that the dimension tables to group information from the fact table.

Queries run faster against a partitioned cube because Analysis Services only needs to read data from the partitions that contain the answers to the queries.
