Hiding an Entire SSAS Cube Dimension Using Role Based Security

Today we had requirement where we needed to hide 2 out of 10 dimensions of SSAS cube for certain users.

Added Role based security. Went to the Dimensions option in Edit Role, looked at the drop down for Access…yet didn’t see ‘None’. HUH? Only Read and Read/Write. Messed around and couldn’t find an acceptable solution so I decided to post this.

As per this blog. went with creating a new cube with linked measure groups and dimensions approach.
