Essbase - Aliases

Essbase Overview


Aliases are alternate :

  • names,
  • descriptions,
  • languages,
  • or other items

that help to define an object.

For example for a dimension, you may refer to a customer number in the system, but you can assign an alias that displays the company name on the screen, to make it easier to identify that client. You can assign one or more aliases to accounts, currencies, entities, scenarios, periods, versions, years, and user-defined dimension members.
