Implementing User-specific security in SSAS

You often have a requirement to restrict access to members of a dimension on a user-specific basis. You can accomplish this through the use of what is referred to as "dynamic security". The purpose of this blog entry is to demonstrate a standard technique for implementing this.

In this demonstration, you will limit access to the Reseller dimension of the Adventure Works DW multidimensional database. You will implement structures in both this database and the associated AdventureWorksDW relational database. It is assumed these databases are hosted locally, and it is recommended you backup both databases prior to making any of the required changes.
