Run an association

When you run an association, Planning Business Modeler copies fact data from the source model to the destination model, and uses the dimension and member mappings that you specified.

NoteNote:

To run an association, every source and destination dimension must be either mapped or scoped. In addition, the source model and the destination model must be deployed.

You can decide to run an association directly, or run an association by scheduling a job.

You must be a member of the Data Administrator role to run an association. For more information, see Security and roles.

The following procedure provides steps for running an association.

    To run an association, the association must be checked in to the model. If necessary, click Check In from the Association Tasks pane.
