How to rename dimensions and measures displayed in a Design Studio InfoChart

In DesignStudio is there a way to rename the dimensions and measures returned by a data-source when they are displayed in an InfoChart?

In the screenshot below I have an (Bar-Chart) InfoChart that is based on a BusinessObjects IDT .unx universe.

I can see that the names of the dimensions and measures displayed in the legend and in the tool-tip are based upon the names of the business-layer objects in the universe.

There seems to be no way to override the default naming convention of these dimensions/measures in the DesignStudio tool itself.

This means that if we wish to give a universe measure a certain name in one analysis application, and another name in another application, we would be forced to duplicate the measure with two different names.

Thank you in advance.

    Hi - a similar question was asked in this thread: https://archive.sap.com/discussions/thread/3875744 where Karol recommends looking at the Scorecard component.

    If you are using universes and need to rename fields, I also recommend trying SAP Lumira which has this feature.

    Hi Knoa,

    What is the business reason for applying a different name to the same measure in different applications? For consistency would you not want the same measure to express the same meaning in all applications instead of specifying different names?

    • Hi Chris,

      I am not aware of any updates on this. However, my personal sense is that this particular request would probably not be considered a high priority for development.

      Regards,

      Mustafa.
