Error description

  • A Virtual Dynamic Cube will expose all measures from the Base
    cubes when one of the base cubes does not have security
    applied.??Base Cube 1 has some measures say Purchase and Amount.
     Permissions is granted to the Purchase measures for the
    Purchasing group.??Base Cube 2 is similar to Base Cube 1 with
    additional Purchase and Amount measures.  Again, permissions is
    granted to the Purchase measures for the Purchasing
    group.??These cubes are combined into Virtual Cube 1.?Purchasing
    User accessing Virtual Cube 1 will see all the Purchase measures
    but none of the Amount Measures.  This is as expected.??Base
    Cube 3 has Quantity measures and does not have security applied.
     Purchasing user accessing this cube will be able to see all the
    Quantity measures.  This is expected.??Combine Virtual Cube 1
    and Base Cube 3 into a new Virtual Cube and Purchasing user
    accessing this cube will see all the Purchase, Amount and
    Quantity Measures.??They should not see the Amount Measures.
