Creating a multi-dimensional cube of attributes

Configure a Cube process to create a multi-dimensional cube of attributes. Any cubes created in the Sessions area will be available globally.

Before you begin

Before you can create a cube using a Cube process, you must create a strategic segment or dimension hierarchy.


  1. Open a session flowchart for editing.
  2. Drag the Cube process Cube from the palette to your flowchart.
  3. Double-click the Cube process in the flowchart.

    The Cube process configuration dialog box opens and the Source tab is open by default.

  4. On the Source tab, use the Input segments list to select one or more segments as input for the cube.
    Important: If you select more than one source segment, ensure that they all have the same audience level.
  5. Click the Cube definitions tab to define your cube:
    • Click Add to add a new cube. Enter a name and description. Select up to three dimensions from the corresponding lists. The dimensions must be related to the strategic segments that the cube source is based on. When you click OK, the new cube definition appears in the list of cubes on the Cube definitions tab.
    • Select a cube and click Edit to modify it.
    • Select a cube and click Remove to delete it.
  6. Click the Select additional fields to track tab to specify additional fields for tracking. You can:
    • Select and move the fields you want to track from the Available fields list to the Selected fields list, using the Add>> button
    • Click Derived fields to select or create derived fields to track.
    • Click Profile to see the contents of the selected field.
  7. (Optional) Click the General tab to assign a name and descriptive note.

    The name displays on the process box in the flowchart. The note displays when you hover the cursor over the process box in the flowchart.

  8. Click OK.

    The process is configured. You can test the process to verify that it returns the results you expect.
