  • When setting up work status for data locking on dimension Datasouce (Audit), then run control. User is not able to run dimension on parent node of Data souce dimension anymore. An Error saying "Selecting parent member for dimension CURRENCY is not allowed" will show up.

  • First, The issue is not related to Currency dimension so the error message is misleading.

  • Second, There is no document explain why it is not allowed to run on Data Source parent node when the work status is set up.
