ImpersonationMode Enumeration

Defines the access mode to the data source that the service uses when it processes its objects, synchronizes the server, and for the Data Mining statement OPENQUERY (DMX).

Namespace:  Microsoft.AnalysisServices
Assembly:  Microsoft.AnalysisServices (in Microsoft.AnalysisServices.dll)

public enum ImpersonationMode

Member nameDescription
DefaultUses the inherited value from the ImpersonationMode on the DataSourceImpersonationInfo object in the database.
The default ImpersonationMode is ImpersonateCurrentUser for DM OPENQUERY (DMX) and out of line data sources, and the default for processing and server synchronizing is ImpersonateServiceAccount.
ImpersonateServiceAccountThe credentials of the service account are used.
Only Server Administrators can designate a data source impersonation mode as ImpersonateServiceAccount
ImpersonateAnonymousCurrently not supported.
ImpersonateCurrentUserThe current user is impersonated.
This is valid for OPENQUERY (DMX) statements only
ImpersonateAccountThis option is used when the service uses the account and (optionally) a password associated with the data source.
The absence of a password indicates that the service account will request a Kerberos ticket for the data source service and the domain will check to see if service account can delegate credentials to the data source.

Each data source object has an ImpersonationMode which states how the service authenticates itself to the data source.
