Example 2—Permitting Access to a Single Member

In this example, the database role has access to cells for the Cost measure, but does not have access to cells for any other measure. The following expression is the Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) expression that sets these permissions:

Measures.CurrentMember IS Measures.Cost

Based on these cell data permissions for this database role, a query on all cells returns the result set shown in the following table.

Important noteImportant

If a Microsoft Windows user or group belongs to multiple database roles, a query on all cells would first result in a dataset being generated based upon each database role to which the user or group belongs. Then, Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services combines all these datasets into one dataset, and returns that combined dataset to the user or group.
