Understanding Dimensions of Essbase Cubes
After creating an Essbase cube connection, you can create Essbase dimensions. Dimensions represent different aspects that are related to a multidimensional database. Typical dimensions are:
A time dimension, which is used to map transactional information over a time period.
An account dimension, which is used to map various affected accounts.
A country dimension, which is used to map geographic transactional areas.
Groupings of dimensions make up a cube outline.
