I have a requirement where the authorization policies for authenticated users trying to access Analysis Services 2005 should be fetched from a custom datastore like SQL Server database instead of AD.

I will appreciate if you let me know how that is possible?

Thank you,

Maybe I misunderstood your question. In AS2005, you can customize the individual roles of a user from Analysis Services. This is where you can define the "granularity" of the users access rights. AD, only authenticates the user, it does not dictate their AS access rights. However, this uses the 'datastore' from Analysis Services (which is separate from Active Directory). The only other way i know to control this is programatically through your own custom application.
