Derived elements



Permission serves as the abstract base type for a number of derived permission types used in an instance of Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services.

This data type has the following validations under DeploymentMode value 2 (tabular server mode).

  • Process attribute default value is set to False, except when the user has the Refresh permission. For users with the Refresh permission the Process attribute value is set to True.

  • ReadDefinition attribute value is set to None; any other value generates an error.

  • Read attribute value is set to Allowed for users with the User permission and to None when the users are assigned to the Refresh permission; if a user has both User and Refresh permissions, then the attribute is set to Allowed. For users with administrative privileges the attribute value is set to Allowed.

  • Write attribute value is set to None; any other value generates an error.

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