SSAS OLAP Cubes - Rolling up using 'Import' functionality?

Hello All,

 

I am trying to import certain metrics from my SSAS OLAP cube with PowerBI Desktop and noticed that it strips all parent child hierarchy aggregations. 

 

Is there a way to maintain these - so for example I want to get a metric (eg. Missed %) at a Parent level and Child Level like I see using a live connection instead of just a flat import at the lowest level.

 

Regards,

Oz

Hi @OZ_123,

 

From your description, you want to keep the Parent-child hierarchies when connecting to SSAS with import mode, right? Per my knowledge, this is not supported.

 

To maintain the hierarchies, we have to create a live connection to SSAS, the levels between parant and child will be uploaded. For import mode, it only fetches resource tables, ignoring relationships between them.
