In this post we will see how to address the SSAS warning message: “The name specified for the attribute relationship differs from the name of the related attribute”, it’s not a critical waning but it’s always good to make sure that these warnings are addressed before going to production.
Usually this happens because attribute names were renamed after the relationships between attributes had already been defined.
To fix the warning messages:
1. Go to Attribute Relationships section for the dimension.
2. In the lower right corner, you should find list of relationships.The ones that cause the warning would have a blue squiggly line with a warning symbol on the arrow (example shown below):
3. Right Click on the Relationship > Go to Properties > Change the Name property to the new renamed name that you gave to the attribute – it should be what’s shown in the Attribute property.
That’s it, this should fix the ssas warning message now since the name specified for attribute relationship would now match related attribute.
