CALUMO Perspectives

Overview

CALUMO Perspectives (Perspectives) are a customizable selection of measures and dimensions (hierarchies) that act as real cube in CALUMO. They provide a way to define a logical cube that is the subset of an existing Analysis Service cube.

To manage Perspectives, use the CALUMO Perspecitives action in the Data Drawer.

Managing Perspectives

Layout

The layout of the Perspectives management dialog is in three sections (as shown in the image below):

  1. Source Cube / Perspective selector
  2. Perspective Editor
  3. Action Buttons

CALUMO Perspectives

Actions

There are three actions available when managing Perspectives:

  • Save
  • Clear
  • Delete

Save

This will perform validation and then, if successful, save the current state of the Perspective being created/edited.

The following validation rules are executed:

  • Must have a unique name across all known cubes and Perspectives
  • Must include at least one Measure
  • Must include at least one Hierarchy

If any of these validation rules fail, a prompt will appear showing which rule has failed (an example is shown below).

CALUMO Perspectives

Clear

This will clear the currently selected Perspective and prompt if doing so will potentially lose changes in progress.

CALUMO Perspectives

Delete

When a Perspective is selected, the Delete action button will activate allowing you to delete it.

Caution

As per the prompt when deleting a Perspective, doing so could cause any CALUMO assets that reference it to stop working.
