Restricted and calculation keyfigures


Has BO pre calculation and restricted key figures for use it in any reports, look like in BW, where you can set some restricted or calculation keyfigures in cube by the Query designer. And after it anybody who create new report based on this cube can access to use this calculation ar restricted key figure?

I think it's can be done by univers layer, but how it's possible to do?

For example how sum two key figure and restrict it by two characteristics?

    We do not provide a UI equivalent to BEx Query Designer that will help you to create restricted key figures.

    You have to write an MDX expression to satisfy your needs.

    We plan to address all BEx Query Designer in a metadata convergence project in future releases.

    In teh meantime, here is some samples that you can use for building your restricted key figures:

    Restricted key figure - one member per characteristic:

    (([Measures].[0D_INV_QTY], [0CALQUARTER].[19981], [0D_DIV].[7])

    Restricted key figure - multiple members per characteristic:

    Aggregate({[0CALQUARTER].[19981], [0CALQUARTER].[19983]}, [Measures].[0D_INV_QTY])

    Restricted key figure - exclude multiple members per characteristic:

    Aggregate(Except({[0CALQUARTER].Members, {[0CALQUARTER].[19981], [0CALQUARTER].[19983] }), [Measures].[0D_INV_QTY])

      Today, the recommended path is to use BEx queries in any case.

      The main reason is that the following metadata are only exposed through BEx queries:

      - Variables

      - Keydates

      - Navigational attributes

      - Structures

      - Restricted KF and calculated KF

      - Formulas - etc

      You will have always the ability enhance the add calculated key figures, filters, additional variables, etc.
