Hi Vikram,

Thanks for reaching out. Can you provide more detail on what you're trying to accomplish? I'm not quite sure what's being asked here. Searching online isn't providing any seemingly related results. Perhaps some examples would help.

Thanks,

Does Yellowfin supports creating multi dimensional reports?

I think Yellowfin doesn't support creating multi dimensional report.

However I could see below note in Yellowfin 7.4 release notes, refers to multi-dimension analysis but don't find any way to create multi-dimension reports.

"Tell the Insight Wizard what you want to see and then let Yellowfin work its magic. The system will automatically perform data analysis by running a series of algorithms before displaying results that are most relevant to your data. These are presented as visual and narrative “insights”, starting with single all the way through to multi-dimension analysis."

Hi Vikram,

Sorry for the delay on this. I reached out to my global colleagues to see if anyone had some feedback on this, but was still unsure. Thanks for pointing to where you found this information as I can certainly now explain what is meant here.

What's being referred to here is, when using the Insight Wizard, you can choose to analyze a single dimension:

/6ONghAQIECBAgQIAAAQIECEwhgf8Pg9hX0Y0z50sAAAAASUVORK5CYII=

or multiple dimensions:

This should cover what you've highlighted here, but I did also think of one other scenario where multi-dimensional data sources are mentioned - you can connect to OLAP Cubes in Yellowfin as a data source. From my understanding it's pretty complex to set up and we do have several defects logged against it, so if you were to pursue building reports based on one I'd recommend extensive testing before putting into production.

Please let me know if you have any further questions on this.

Regards,

Mike
