Thank you Luc.

I was trying to avoid having to use the Mondrian connection, this is exactly what I was looking for.

The Role API is mondrian specific, so it takes mondrian objects as parameters. To get access to the mondrian connection from an olap4j connection, you can do:


The same applies to metadata objects. You can do:


Let me know if that's what you needed.

I’m in the process of implementing programmatic roles in our adhoc reporting tool.  We’re currently running Mondrian stand alone against our OLAP schema and we would like to dynamically create roles for each user.

The problem I’m having right now is with the granting of access to specific objects in the schema (schema, cubes, dimensions, hierarchies, & members).  Is there a way to convert a olap4j metadata object (Schema, Cube, Dimension, etc) back to a legacy Mondrian olap object?

The reason I ask is the grant method on the RoleImpl class only accepts the legacy Mondrian.olap.* objects.  Should I use a legacy Mondrian.olap.connection to lookup the objects that I want to grant access to?

Thanks in advance for your help.
