Dimension Processing Destination

The Dimension Processing destination loads and processes an SQL Server Analysis Services dimension. For more information about dimensions, see Dimensions (Analysis Services - Multidimensional Data).

The Dimension Processing destination includes the following features:

  • Options to perform incremental, full, or update processing.

  • Error configuration, to specify whether dimension processing ignores errors or stops after a specified number of errors.

  • Mapping of input columns to columns in dimension tables.

For more information about processing Analysis Services objects, see Processing Options and Settings.

The Dimension Processing destination uses an Analysis Services connection manager to connect to the Analysis Services project or the instance of Analysis Services that contains the dimensions the destination processes. For more information, see Analysis Services Connection Manager.

This destination has one input. It does not support an error output.
