User-entered dimensions enable users to create and use dimensions in PMF before loadable dimension data is available. Similar to user-entered measures, once a user-entered dimension is defined values can be immediately typed directly into PMF for your dimensions.
User-entered dimensions are useful when you need to rapidly prototype new engagements with PMF. Since these values are linked to measures through internal keys, they are not suitable for production environments.
Limitations of User-Entered Dimensions
Note: User-entered measures must be re-entered as well.
The New Dimension panel opens.
You can create a structure in the Hierarchy & Data tab by entering Level names in the fields provided.
The Edit Dimension panel opens.
Note that each column in the editor corresponds to a level, as defined in the dimension panel. You can type the level values in each text box, as shown in the following image.
The Enter Dimension Values tab from the Edit Dimension editor allows you to add values to the dimension at any level.
Removing the values of UK result in that entire section of hierarchy getting removed, as shown in the following image.
