The PropertyList element contains a collection of XMLA properties. Each property allows the user to control some aspect of the Discover or Execute method, such as defining the information required to connect to the data source, specifying the return format of the result set, or specifying the locale in which the data should be formatted. Each XMLA property in the PropertyList element is defined by a separate XML element. The value of the XMLA property is the data contained by the XML element, and the name of the XMLA property corresponds to the name of the XML element.
The available properties and their values can be obtained by using the DISCOVER_PROPERTIES request type with the Discover method. There is no required order for the properties listed in the PropertyList element.
