Compare SSAS xmla with bim in BISM normalizer

Arun Kumar 41 Reputation points


I have code in xmla and .bim format. I need to compare both using BISM and merge/update the codes. But BISM is not recognizing bim format in source or target. Is there a way to do it? Do i need to convert the bim format to xmla or viceversa?

    Hi @Arun Kumar ,

    Thanks for your posting.

    Based on my researched, BISM Normalizer can recognizing Model.bim file in source or target. And you could right click the Model.bim file to view code, you will see the Model.bim file was written by Json. You cannot compare XLMA and Json using BISM normalizer. For more information, please refer to How to use BISM Normalizer and BISM Normalizer: Version 5.0 Released!
