Define Cube Attribute Properties

Cube attribute properties enable you to specify unique settings for dimension attributes in cube dimensions based on the same database dimension. The following table describes the properties of a cube attribute.

Property

Description

AggregationUsage

Specifies how the Aggregation Design Wizard will design aggregations for the attribute. This property can have the following values:

Value

Description

Default

The Aggregation Design Wizard applies a default rule based on the type of attribute (Full for keys, Unrestricted for others).

None

No aggregation for the cube should include this attribute.

Unrestricted

No restrictions are placed on the Aggregation Design Wizard.

Full

Every aggregation for the cube must include this attribute.

Default value is Default.

AttributeHierarchyEnabled

Identifies whether the attribute hierarchy is enables on this cube dimension. This allows attribute hierarchies to be disabled on specific cubes or dimension roles. This setting has no effect if the underlying attribute hierarchy is disabled. Default value is True.

OptimizedState

Indicates whether the attribute hierarchy is optimized on this cube dimension. This allows attribute hierarchies to be optimized on specific cubes or dimension roles. This setting has no effect if the underlying attribute hierarchy is not optimized. This property can have the following values:

Value

Description

FullyOptimized

The instance builds indexes for the hierarchy to improve query performance. This is the default value.

NotOptimized

The instance does not build additional indexes.

Default value is FullyOptimized.

AttributeHierarchyVisible

Indicates whether the attribute hierarchy is visible on this cube dimension. This allows attribute hierarchies to be visible on specific cubes or dimension roles. This setting has no effect if the underlying attribute hierarchy is not visible. The default value is True.

AttributeID

Contains the unique identifier (ID) of the attribute.
