Analysis Services Scripting Language XML Data Types (ASSL)

This reference section contains syntax and usage information for each element that acts as a type in the Analysis Services Scripting Language (ASSL) schema.

Although the ASSL schema contains only XML elements, from a developer's point of view, the elements described in this section correspond to types, such as Binding and Permission, which are used to define the child elements and properties of other objects.

Type elements, like objects elements, are never leaf-level elements in the ASSL schema, but have child elements and elements that correspond to object properties.

However a type element never appears as an element in a script that defines or describes Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services objects. Instead it appears as the type of other object elements, normally designated with the type attribute from the XML Schema Instance schema using xsi:type or xs:type. For example, <Assembly xsi:type="ClrAssembly">...</Assembly>.

In some cases, a type derives from another type. For example, the CubeBinding type derives from the parent Binding type.
