Hi,

I am working on MicroStrategy Analytics Desktop in which I would like to Import Data From  my local SSAS Cube.

I can't find appropriate connection for it.

Can anyone tell me how can I access my SSAS Cube's data in MicroStrategy  Analytics Desktop application ?

Hi,
Please refer to the "Connecting to Analysis Services..." section in the "Microstrategy MDX Cube Reporting Guide"

http://www2.microstrategy.com/producthelp/9.4/manuals/en/MDXCubeReporting.pdf


In summary, what needs to be done is the SSAS is exposed via XMLA layer in IIS - and then a Database Instance is configured in Microstrategy to communicate with this XMLA layer and visbility to the required cubes is gained.


Please refer to the following link for details on the IIS configuration:

Be careful with any authentication settings.

Hi,

I had Exposed SSAS HTTP access but I was unable to find how to use that to connect with Microstrategy.

In the document it is for Old version of Microstrategy which has straight connection for SSAS which the new 9.4.1 does not have..

Barry,

MicroStrategy MDX Cube Provider ??

I can't find it anywhere and I think the solution which you are giving is not supported in Microstrategy Analytics Desktop 9.4.1.6

Hi Vikas,
Please confirm if you are referring to the Analytics Desktop (Free) version.
Yes, according to the following link, Multi-Dimensional databases are not supported in the Analytics Desktop (Free) version:  
http://www.microstrategy.com/us/free/desktop#compare

So it appears that it is just not possible to connect to SSAS with Analytics Desktop (Free) version - and I am assuming, as is more than likely, SSAS in this case is classified as a Multi-Dimensional database
