Drill Through columns with MSAS as Data source

Hello,
I have MSAS Olap cubes as datasource and testing your tool succesfully with most of the features we need, but, is there a way to customize the columns shown after a Drill Through action?
I’m asking because we have more than a hundred different measures which means that if we get 400 rows within the Drill Through, we are showing 40.000 cells, which takes a considerable amount of time to render in the web browser. 
And, the most important thing is that our customers will not want to see all those measures, maybe just 5-10 columns for each report.
Thanks!

Hello,
 
Thank you for writing.
As for the drill through, there is no option to control the columns in MSAS on the client. The server returns underlying table rows that were used to create a specified cell in a cube. But, it can be controlled by roles on the server. From Microsoft documentation:

Drillthrough security is based on the general security options defined on the cube. If a user cannot get some data by using MDX, drillthrough will also restrict the user in the exactly the same manner.

So, I guess it is possible to limit the number of columns on the server by using security restrictions.
 
Hope it helps.
 
Regards,
Ian
