Analysis Services Connector using perspectives

Currently it appears that you can only connect to a single perspectice when using the Anaysis Services Connector.  Are there plans to enable using Perspectives or allowing a single AS Connector to serve for multiple data sets, each pointing to a different perspective?


I could easilly see orgainzaitons that limit what different teams see (Sales, Ops, Finance), and controlling/securing that information is easily done through AD & Perspectives.

Being able to use perspectives to limit the data an end user has to work with would be awesome.


This is still relevant information, correct? The SSAS connector can only support connecting to one perspective. Creating a new dataset in Service and changing the perspective for the new connection also changes it for existing datasets previously created.

That connector does enforce per user security through USERNAME functionality so if you had a single perspective, security could be enforced.
