Hides or customizes a hierarchy in a Business Intelligence subject area.


The <hierarchy> element has the following contents:

Attribute or Element Purpose
name, displayName, description, disabled See Common Attributes in a Subject Area.
<level> (Optional) You can include zero or more <level> elements, each of which can hide a level.
hidden (Optional) If this attribute is "true" then the hierarchy is not available in this subject area. The default is "false".

If all hierarchies of a dimension are hidden, then the dimension itself will be hidden within the subject area. If you hide a dimension in this manner, the system also hides any calculated members that you might place in the same dimension.
