In IBM InfoSphere™ Warehouse V9.7, Cubing Services modify the way you secure your cubes and provide a way for you to secure your dimensions. You might need to limit access to your OLAP data at the level of the cube or at the more granular level of the dimension, depending on your security requirements. In this article, you will learn how to define security on cubes and dimensions by creating roles, policies, and authorizations in the Design Studio. This article describes how to export the security model to a file and how to use the Administration Console to import the security model to the InfoSphere Warehouse control database. After importing the security model, you will learn how to instruct the Cube Server to enforce the rules in the security model.
