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?

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

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