Dynamically Rename Dimension in Published app

I am trying to rename a Dimension in published app based on the value from another table

The table structure is below

TABLEA

LOC  Varchar2(50)

QTY   Number

TABLEB

LABEL1         varchar2(20)

LABELDESC  varchar2(50)

In the first refresh, I am renaming the Dimension "LOC" in TableA based on the LabelDesc value in Table B,

Data for Table B is as below for 2 refreshes.

TABLEB

LABEL1LABELDESC
LOCLOCATION-ALL

When App is refreshed with the above data LOC field gets refreshed successfully, no issue in visualization

displays the renamed field correctly

when The app is refreshed with the below data, Visualization breaks as it specifically searches for the field "LOCATION-ALL"

LABEL1LABELDESC
LOCLOCATION

I have even tried renaming the field back to LOCATION-ALL and then rename it to LOCATION, it still does not work.

Has anyone experienced this issue ?

Note : This issue is only if the dimension is used in visualization and for published App

This looks like, you don't have access to make changes to a published app.

Hi Sujith,

You can't manipulate dimension label dinamically (If I get it, what you want).
