SqlASDoc, the Analysis Services Documenter
Analysis Services Documenter (SqlASDoc for short) is a tool which creates
documentation for your Analysis Services databases.
It connects to your live
server, and queries the metadata for the name and description which the developers
attached to every object (database, cube, dimension, hierarchy, attribute, translation,
data source, data source view,...). It then produces an HTML file
which contains the name and description of all these objects. But there is more:
also other properties, such as last processing time, creation time, sizes of fact
tables etc. are written to the HTML file.
It's a clickonce application, so the download will automatically
install the tool. The tool also regularly checks for updates. Currently, the tool
is available for free. However, notice that this software is licensed “as-is.” You
