SQL Server – Analysis Services – Granting Server level permissions


Granting permissions to the SQL Server Engine is common practice.

But, granting permissions to downlevel services such as Integration, Reporting, and Analysis is not something the DBA does as often.


Analysis Service

In this post we will discuss how to use SQL Server Management Studio to do so.

SQL Server Management Studio ( SSMS )

Here are the steps:

  1. Launch SQL Server Management Studio ( SSMS )
  2. The Connect to Server dialog appears
    • In the Server Type :- Analysis Services

  3. Access the Server’s property
    • Select the Server
    • Right click on your server
    • From the drop-down menu, select Properties
  4. In the “Analysis Server Properties” window
    • Select the Security Tab
    • Review the list of System Administrators
    • Click the Add button to add new Sys Admins
