IBM Planning Analytics Tips & Tricks Series

This is a guest post from Revelwood’s Shane Bethea.

Did you know that there is a new way to edit object settings in IBM Planning Analytics Workspace (PAW)? The Settings editor is new for PAW and gives the system administrator a clear, easy to use interface to modify attributes, security, and properties for objects such as cubes, dimensions, processes, and chores (where applicable). In the background, the Settings editor is still modifying entries in control cubes such as the }CubeAttributes, }CubeSecurity, and }CubeProperties cubes, but the new interface is much easier to use and a more centralized interface.

To use the Settings editor, right click on Cubes (or Dimensions, Processes, or Chores) within the navigation tree and select Edit settings.
