Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations ships with a good collection of report models for Power BI. But there are some areas of the application not covered or you might want to include custom tables or other data into your environment so users can report on the data. You can do this with an aggregate measurement. This is a new object type that allows you to pull your measures and dimensions together for analytics. The measure can then be used to published the aggregate data to the entity store. I did an overview of this process for a customer and I thought I’d publish it as a series of posts so others could learn as well.
This is the first post that walks through the end to end of creating an aggregate measurement. However to add context to the measure and keep the data model simple I created some new tables that will contain our data. This part creates the first of two tables that we’ll use to store our data. In this example it will be a simple table to represent some master data that we can use as a dimension to analyze the transactional data.
