Attribute Description


(Optional Boolean attribute) Indicates whether all objects that require reprocessing will be processed.

If set to true, the Analysis Services instance processes any objects that require reprocessing as a result of processing an object included in the Batch command.

If set to false, the Analysis Services instance processes only those objects included in the Batch command.


(Optional Boolean attribute) Indicates whether the command included in the Batch command are treated as a single transaction or individual transactions.

If set to true, all of the commands included in the Batch command are considered a single transaction. If any command fails, the commands executed prior to the failed command are rolled back, and the Batch command stops without executing subsequent commands.

If set to false, the Batch command attempts to execute every command, and commits the results of each command that completes successfully.

For more information about performing batch operations in XMLA, see Performing Batch Operations (XMLA).
