Deep-Dive to Analysis Services Security
The Session will cover all advanced topics that you need to know about
when developing high complex security solutions for your SSAS database. Those
topics include cross-level dimension security, multiple role combinations and
foremost dynamic security setups. All of them are designed for different
business requirements but no solution fits them all. The different approaches
will be examined on their impact on caching, connection time and also
maintenance and in the end you probably understand why it can sometimes make
sense to have 2000+ dynamic roles in your SSAS cube! A major part of the
session will be dedicated to dynamic security using SSAS assemblies. Especially
for complex requirements this is often the last hope. This session will guide
you through the most common and uncommon pitfalls that you will encounter and
show how to work around them.
