Mondrian Version : mondrian-220.127.116.1171
This is a further sample which querying Sales Cube with Role limitation using JPivot interface. The cube data is derived from MySQL foodmart sample data which we can generate from Mondrian's zip bundle. The sales cube schema is defined in Foodmart.xml file.
The page shown will by default show 3 dimensions, they are :
But the important of this sample is the role feature that we implied into JPivot tag. This page shows data that is only available to role 'California Manager'.
Open and edit testrole.jsp file - which should be located in your [TOMCAT_HOME]/webapps/mondrian/WEB-INF/queries folder - with your favorite text editor, and edit <jp:mondrianQuery> with these following configurations :
Note : [TOMCAT_HOME] is the folder where your Apache Tomcat installed. For example : C:\apache-tomcat-6.0.16
To understand this sample you need to look at some part of the Foodmart.xml - which should be located in [TOMCAT_HOME]/webapps/mondrian/queries/Foodmart.xml - which describe the role.
Intuitively enough, this role configuration tells Mondrian that 'California Manager' can access all California state parts except Los Angeles.
Open your Mondrian web application and click on the fourth sample from the index page (JPivot with role 'California Manager' set). You should see an OLAP data table with a JPivot toolbar. Drill through some of the dimension level nodes.
For example, my web application is located at http://localhost:8080/mondrian and my "JPivot with role 'California Manager' set" sample url is http://localhost:8080/mondrian/testpage.jsp?query=testrole. Screenshot below shows the page that have been drillthrough at some nodes.
To make a comparison, I take a screenshot of the same page without any role shown below.
