Create Dimensions with Derived Dimension Values

Derived dimension values are determined by other dimension values and automatically populate on modeled sheets.

Available only with sales planning.

Derived dimension values let you use dynamic data classification what-if analysis based on user defined data attributes. For example, you can perform dynamic customer segmentation based on the customer demographic attributes geo location, industry, and company size during territory planning. Create a derived dimension to have values on modeled sheets to be automatically populated based on user-defined dimension value mapping rules. Use the new dimension mapping dashboard table to view, update, delete, and create new dimension value mapping rules.

A dimension with derived dimension values is not an eligible dimension for access rules.
