Error description

  • When using a Powercube with a cube password, but no sign-on
    definition, the user is prompted to enter the cube password.
    This is the case for example for Analysis Studio, Powerplay
    Client and Report Studio.
    
    When same package is used in a dashboard, then the user is not
    prompted and receives the following error message:
    The metadata for '<cube name>' did not load. Please contact your
    administrator for details.
    
    Also the XQE log file protocols a corresponding error.
    

Local fix

  • Define a sign-on for the cube password.
    Apply additional security to it or the data source to grant or
    deny access for users/ groups/ roles as per your needs.
    
    Or replace cube password and apply security definitions using
    custom views.
