Request Body Details

This service uses the following properties of the request body:

MDX Required. MDX SELECT QUERY.
FILTERS Optional. Any additional filters to add to the query. If specified, this property must be an array of strings, each of which specifies a filter value.
WAIT Optional. Specify 0 or 1 (the default). If this property is 0, the server sends partial results. If this property is 1, the server assumes the client wishes to wait for complete results before sending a response.
TIMEOUT Optional. Timeout for waiting for query results, in seconds. The default timeout for this wait is 2 seconds less than the session’s timeout setting.

Example Response

Response for MDX Query

Note that POST /Data/PivotExecute and POST /Data/MDXUpdateResults return the same response body.

The Info.QueryID property contains the query ID, which you need as input for the POST /Data/MDXCancelQuery and POST /Data/MDXUpdateResults services. An Info.ResultsComplete property with a value of 1 indicates that the MDX query has completed. Note that if the Info.PendingResults property has a value of 1, plugins are still computing, although the rest of the query may have completed. An Info.PendingResults property with a value of 0 indicates that any plugins have finished computing.

For information that applies to all response objects, see the discussion at the start of this reference.
