All active dimensions need to be mapped (certainly in the 11.x FDM versions), even if all your values map one-to-one you still need a mapping (usually LIKE * to *) to facilitate this. That is why you get all active dimensions in the mapping dimension list. Therefore the short answer to your question is no.1 person found this helpful
Thanks for your immediate reply,
yes we are using one to one mapping for all the mentioned dimensions, is it possible to hide particular dimensions from the Dimensions Drop Down List?
can it be done either directly in FDM or can be done using any custom scripts?

If hiding the other dimensions is to prevent users from accessing and changing the mappings then you could do this by amending the object security so that only certain user roles can access the Activities > Maps option.
This will only really work if you have limited users / central team that will control the maps but it is the most obvious way to stop users accessing the maps.
Hope this helps
Thanks for your response Stuart,
yes we are using object security for map options in certain applications but now the case is, we need to hide only few active dimensions from the Dimensions Drop Down list
(only in visibility point of view) not to disable the entire map option,
Is this privilege available in FDM? can it be done by any manual scripting?
I'm not aware of how you would do that I'm afraid. Once you set a dimension as being active I think it automatically appears in that drop down list.
Thanks Stuart for your concrete answer.... Now I am clear.
