I have been using MDS since sql 2008. When I have the business user asking for changes to the MDS model, one of the request that I continually keep getting asked is conditional domain attribute filtering. An example can be seen http://blog.contextures.com/archives/2013/09/26/conditional-drop-down-lists-in-excel/. This would help the business user in not corrupting the member with invalid data. Another example that would be useful is in a workflow process where you could only select next available state/s.

Thank you for submitting this feedback. After carefully evaluating all of the bugs in our pipeline, we are closing bugs that we will not fix in the current or future versions. The reasons for closing these bugs are following:
1.     The fix is risky to implement in the current version of the product
2.     Scenarios reported in the bug are not common enough
3.     A viable workaround is available.

If the issue is a critical business interruption, please call CSS (Customer Support Services).

Thanks again for reporting the product issue and continued support in improving our product.
