Technical Names of Measures / Dimensions in a Universe


The source is a universe

I am implementing a dashboard in design studio. I need to dynamically set the measures used a chart via a script. CHART.setDataSelection


XYZ and ABC are the measures. Is there a way I can find this information in the Universe in a single view? At the moment I have to manually select the measure in the chart data selection and then press ok to view the script generated to understand the technical name.

I have the same problem when finding out the technical names of the dimensions - I have to edit initial view and I can see the technical names of the dimensions.

    Hi leo,

    This code will help you to dynamically make data selection.

    you can specify if condition as needed to create required measure list.

    var measures = DS_1.getMembers(DS_1.getMeasuresDimension(), 100);

    var measures_needed = "";

    measures.forEach(function(element, index) {



    measures_needed = measures_needed + element.internalKey + ";" ;



    var measure_array = measures_needed.split(";");

    CHART_1.setDataSelection({"(MEASURES_DIMENSION)" : measure_array});
