Build Perspective

You can use the Build perspective to view just the measures, attributes, and calculations in the data cube that pertain to the build process.

NoteNote

In order to use perspectives with the Team System cube, you must use Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Enterprise Edition or SQL Server 2005 Enterprise (64) Edition on the data tier. SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition that ships as part of Team Foundation Server, does not support the use of perspectives. When you use SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition, the cube elements from all perspectives reside in the Team System data cube.
