In OLAP mode, the cube schema is fetched automatically, and the Data Source Browser displays the entire OLAP cube structure.

To visualize data, drag-and-drop measures, attributes or hierarchies to the appropriate data sections in the DATA ITEMS area, as described in the Binding dashboard items to data in the designer topic.

Note that OLAP measures can only be placed in the Values section, while dimension attributes and hierarchies can be placed within other data sections.

OLAP hierarchies allow you to customize each of their levels separately. To access hierarchy level options, invoke the data item menu for the hierarchy and then use the submenu that corresponds to the desired level.

To learn about the limitations of binding to an OLAP cube, see the Providing data in the dashboard designer topic.
