Attribute Description

The EndSession header element is part of the SOAP request sent to an existing, explicitly started session on an Analysis Services instance. If the EndSession header element is sent, but contains a session identifier that is no longer valid, a SOAP fault is returned that indicates that the session cannot be found.
