Hi

I have a strange request from our BI department and I'm pretty sure it's not possible, but just want to make sure there is not way to do this.

All the BI guys have admin rights to the Analysis Services to create cubes, administer rights, etc.
The BI Manager has now been tasked to create a Finance cube for the finance department, but does not want the rest of the BI team to be able to access the data as it is sensitive company financial data.

Is there any way to do this? Other than creating a new instance of course.

Any ideas will be welcome.

Thanks.

You could remove their OLAP admin access....(I sound like a DBA now ) and grant them admin access to each cube - this can be done by creating an admin role on each cube.
This would not allow them to do server level admin stuff but I doubt they'd need to that on a regular basis. It may be a pain if you have lots of cubes

Currently I'm not allowed read access to any of my production environment so they should count themselves lucky!

Thank you Mack

Yes, they are terribly spoilt and they don't know it :)

Unfortunately I won't be able to take away their rights Would looove to though LOL

Will probably have to create a new instance or new VM for this. *sigh*
