Process Dimension


The Process Dimension action helps bring a cube to a fully processed state. This action helps prepare a test by ensuring it is only testing against an updated dimension.



Once the editor has loaded, the user will need to input the following properties:

1.   Server: The server location for the dimension the user is planning to process. Click "Connect" to load all dimensions stored on the server.

2.   Process Mode: Users can choose which processing mode to use depending on their preferences:

o   Default: Does the smallest amount of work required to bring the selected dimension to a fully processed state

o   Full: Discards the data from the selected dimension and completely rebuilds it

o   Data: Discards the data from the selected dimension and rebuilds the data without building indexes

o   Clear: Discards the data from the selected dimension

o   Index: Rebuilds the indexes for the selected dimension. This requires the dimension to already have its data built

o   Update: Incrementally brings the selected dimension to a fully processed state


3.   Fail on Process Fail: Determins if the test should also fail if the process dimension action fails

4.   Selected: Displays the currently selected dimension.

5.   Server Tree: After connecting, the server tree displays all available dimensions.
