Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Cubes or Role center BI report error

Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Cubes or Role center BI report error.

In Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 you might face problem with BI reports for role center or reports where Cubes are involve.

There can be number of reasons for this and you will get number of errors. Like permission not granted, access denied, related data missing, cubes not processed etc.

Two main reasons are (1) data missing in respective tables and (2) insufficient license.

In most of the places data is interrelated among the tables. If you are missing related data in tables, it will give some errors.

Secondly, by default Microsoft provides cubes for all the tables and assumption is you have 100% license. But when there is a limited license and you apply it to your application, based on limited license system drops few tables for which you do not have license. In such a scenario your queries for cubes are not updated and they are still using 100% tables but you don’t have 100% tables now because of limited license.

Here the option for you is to update the queries but it’s a huge task. For Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 you have to do it manually but to help you Microsoft published a tool to generate an excel sheet which tells you what are the areas you need to work.
In case of Dynamics AX 2012, Microsoft provided few options in the form of a wizard from where you can do it by clicking a button as shown below:
Path: Tools Business Intelligence (BI) Tools  SQL Server Analysis Services project wizard.

In the above wizard if you select Update option and follow the wizard it resolve your problem.
