Debugging ASSP

Guys,

I'm working with the ASSP source to understand what it's doing when running on the server. I'd like some guidance about debugging it (attaching with VS, breakpoints, etc...) so that I can troubleshoot issues arising from it. For example, I am trying to use the DiscoverXmlMetadata call with restrictions, but I can't get the syntax to work no matter which approach I use...so any help would be great!

Hi J.

I did a post on debugging SSAS stored procedures here http://geekswithblogs.net/darrengosbell/archive/2007/05/22/Debugging-SSAS-.Net-Stored-Procedures.aspx (we have a link to it on the wiki, but it is under the addition resources section on the home page).

You should be able to use the same restrictions as you would in the full Xmla DISCOVER_XML_METADATA call, so I would start by testing that you can get the Xmla working in Management Studio. If you are still having trouble feel free to post back with an example of the call you are trying to do.
