Create Data Sets from Essbase Cubes

After you create Essbase connections, you can use those connections to create data sets.

You must create the Essbase connection before you can create a data set for it.
  1. On the Home page click Create and click Data Set.
  2. In the Create Data Set dialog, select an existing Essbase connection.
  3. In the Add Data Set page, double-click the Essbase cube that you want to use as a data set.

    Essbase cube details are displayed.

  4. If required, you can edit the Description, and select an Alias value.

    If you select an alias value other than the default, then values from the selected alias table are displayed in visualizations that use this Essbase data set.

  5. Click Add to save the Essbase cube.
