POST /Info/FilterMembers/:datasource/:filterSpec

Returns information about the members of the given filter, as defined by the given data source (which is either a cube or a KPI).

URL Parameters

datasource Required. Name of the data source. This is one of the following:
  • cubename — a logical cube name
  • cubename.cube — a logical cube name, followed by .cube
  • kpiname.kpi — a logical KPI name, followed by .kpi
This name can include slashes; see “Use of Slashes in Cube and KPI Names,” earlier in this book.
filterSpec Required. Filter specification.

Request Body Details

This service uses the following properties of the request body. These properties both specify filters that are applied to the data source, thus limiting the list of members returned by the service.

RELATED Optional. If specified, this property is an array of objects, each of which contains the spec property (a filter specification) and the value property (value of that filter). A value property should be an MDX set expression and should use member keys.
SEARCHKEY Optional.
