Reproducing the Issue

  1. Turn on "Hide Parents" option for a dimension enabled with Data Access Control.
  2. Run the data action with a business user.


A dimension member is used in the data action but this user does not have access to this dimension because of DAC and Hide Parents setting.


  1. Validate the data action with the business user that cannot run the data action. You should be validation errors.
  2. Grant the user with the access of the member showing in the validation error.
