Dimension (Dimensions collection of Cube)


There is one CubeDimension for each dimension relationship on a Cube. The CubeDimension covers all the MeasureGroups of the cube.

A CubeDimension must include a CubeHierarchy if the dimension has something specific to say about the hierarchy, including disabling the hierarchy (thereby, allowing selection of which hierarchies apply to a particular dimension usage), or making the hierarchy invisible.

Similarly, a CubeDimension must include a CubeAttribute only if the dimension has something specific to say about the attribute. (There is no way to select which attributes apply to a particular dimension usage, though attributes can be made invisible).

The corresponding element in the Analysis Management Objects (AMO) object model is CubeDimension.
