  • Can you hard code the url and check if the URL action shows up in the browser. If yes, then there seem to be some problem in the expression which SSAS is not able to evaluate to. you can also check by having [Customer].[Customer URL].CurrentMember.MemberValue

  • Problem Solved! issue was the Caption not the action expression. Leasson learned, if you have wrong mdx expression in caption, the action itself will not be visible in browser tab.

  • thanks for reply vinuthan, I have already checked the link you have provided. this is a bit different situation then adventure works.

    I understand the concept of "http://abc.com" + whatever value

    But in my case full URL is already in the field/attribute. My action expression is

    [Customer].[Customer URL].CurrentMember

    i do see my other reporting actions in a browser when i right click on customer, but for some reason URL action is not even showing up in browser.

    Thanks

  • Yes i tried it too. infact i also tried real hard coding it by http://www.cnn.com

    but it doesn't show up when i right click on customer, although other reporting actions are showing up. I wonder if there is some other settings for URL actions.
