OLAP Cube Configuration for PPM2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • In the configuration of the cube using the "project" dimension, we added several project level custom fields.  After the successful build of the cube, the project level custom fields do not appear on any of the timephased cubes.  The fields only appeared on the Project Non Timephased cube.  We did not select any cube measures, inactive tasks, or calculated measures.  How do we get the project level custom fields to appear on Timephased cubes?

    To be more specific, are there any cubes that can be built as Project Timephased?  We want to express the demand (work) for projects over time (months) using a project level custom (lookup) field.

  • Hi Tom,

    Several articles discuss the issue you describe and there is an issue with support of custom fields as measures and dimensions 

    Regarding the project level fields, see here, sounds like project level custom fields are not defined as applicable for this type of cube

    "...if you have added a project level custom field to the project cube then it will not be here either.  You can however add that same project level field to the Assignment cube and it will be available..."
