I have an AnalysisServices Server Installed and i have created a cube in it. I need to add a pivotgrid into my site for browsing said cube.
My site is done using MVC controls and i have added an MVC Pivotgrid using the code below:
.DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
.Transport(transport => transport
.Connection(connection => connection
//.Read(read => read
.Events(e => e.Error("onError"))
But i cannot understand where to put the server name. As far as i can tell i need to use .Read(x => x.Url("http://blah.blah") ). and that i need to have an http address for my server installed, as mentioned here: http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/web/pivotgrid/overview
The PivotDataSource component communicates with OLAP cube instance on HTTP using the XMLA protocol
Is this the only way? Can't i use Adomd or ADO.NET?
P.S. i have found examples with code like the one below that imply using adomd is an option:
<AdomdConnectionSettings Cube="Adventure Works" DataBase="Adventure Works DW 2008R2" ConnectionString="Data Source=http://demos.telerik.com/olap/msmdpump.dll;Catalog=Adventure Works DW 2008R2"></AdomdConnectionSettings>
Please forgive me if i have misunderstood anything, i am new to your controls and doing my best to understand them and start using them
