I renamed the technical name of a data set to text as in screenshot, after that I wanted to look for the technical name of the query but could not find it in Lumira? How can I find it again because sometimes the query needs to be edited and when one has a lot of quires, it could be hard to find the right one.

any help

form your side?

Hi Furquan,

nothing new. I am still have the same problem. Till i find a solution or is there on, I created an excel sheet includes all technical names of the query and the documents name. So if I changed the name of the dataset, i can check the excel sheet to figure out the query name.

Sherif - If you try from menu Data > Edit data source, you can find some more details about dataset.

Hallo Tuncay,

I agree with, it gives you only the popup variable window, but no details about the technical name of the query. No sign which on is underlying this dataset or behind it.

see the screenshot



Hello Sherif,

You are right. It seems there are tricky features are missing in Lumira. I have seen another tricky thing for example once you renamed a measure name there is no way to see what underlying field/dimension is!

I will post this my finding into Idea Place ( you can think of same for your finding.
