Creating an OLAP metaoutline in EIS

In this recipe, we will build an OLAP metaoutline in the EIS. The OLAP metaoutline is used to determine the structure and content of your Essbase outline. In contrast to Essbase Studio, we will be using the OLAP metaoutline to accomplish tasks like building hierarchies, creating a cube schema, creating an Essbase model, and setting Essbase properties.
