SQL Analysis Services

I have just added the SQL Server Analysis Services component (along with Business Intelligence Development Studio) to an existing SQL Server 2008 R2 installation. I am able to access it via SSMS on the SQL server itself. But a user is trying to access it from his PC via SSMS but analysis services is not available as an option (only Database Engine is available).
As the analysis services does not have a "security" folder object, I do not know how to grant access to it. Is that possible and how can I allow this user access to it?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If its active directory he must be part of the group that has access to the cube. Or the server with sass

You can add that active directory user to the SSAS security Tab in the properties.

Right click on analysis service in SSMS



Add user

Thats it
