The value of the DiscretizationBucketCount element determines how many groups or "buckets" are created when values for the DimensionAttribute or ScalarMiningStructureColumn are discretized, or organized into a specific set of groups. If the element is not specified, or if zero is specified for the value of the element, Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services (SSAS) creates an appropriate number of groups depending on the discretization method. For more information about discretization methods, see Discretization Methods.

The elements that correspond to the parents of DiscretizationBucketCount in the Analysis Management Objects (AMO) object model are DimensionAttribute and ScalarMiningStructureColumn.
