OLAP server Connections

Hi all,
Is it true that connections to the OLAP server can only be made using a Windows Account?
Is there a way to setup those connections to the OLAP using a Standard Account?
Thanks in advance

Yes, It’s true that one can connect to Microsoft OLAP server only using Windows authentication and the user should be in administrator or SQL olap group

I agree you won’t be able to ‘log on’ to the OLAP service using a SQL Server login, only with a Windows account. But wouldn’t the connection be made under the account under which the SQL service itself is running?
