FIX: Cannot Use User-Defined Functions in Dimension Security Definitions

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
Bug #: 13905 (Plato7x)
You try to use a user-defined function as part of an MDX expression in the Allowed Members or Denied Members entry for dimension security in an Analysis Services role. However, when you try to close the Manage Roles dialog box, you may receive the following error message:
Some of the cubes could not be updated.
Unable to update role in cube cubename.

Error occurred during update of Cube 'cube' on the server: 'Error occurred while processing security for cube 'cube'(Error in the definition of the dimension security for the dimension 'dimension' and role 'role'. Cannot evaluate the expression 'MDX Expression'

Note In this error message, cube is the name of the cube that contains the role; dimension is the name of the dimension whose security is defined by the user-defined function; role is the name of the role that you edited; and MDX Expression is the MDX Expression that contains the call to the user-defined function.
