Measure Tool – Making SSAS measures physical to apply security

The security model of SSAS prevents us to apply security limitations to calculated members. We can hide physical members but we have no means to hide calculated members to any role. By preventing access to the physical measures, the user will not be able to see the result of the calculated measure, nevertheless he will always see the metadata definition of the member and, if he tries to add it to a query, he will get an error as a result.

Even if this approach is effective, it leads to a very poor user experience: it would be much better to completely hide the calculated measure to any user who does not have access to it.
