Is there any way to load dynamic labels automatically into Master items?

Hi everyone.

We are trying to load variables in our labels so they can change depending on the language selected by the app's user. Is there any way to do this automatically?

We have tried to use several plugins to import Master items from excel files, but they do not understand the labels when their expressions are calling a variable. These plugins just load the variables as plain strings, rather than understanding the expressions inside them.

The other approach we have tried is to use the Governed Metrics Service (Home - EA Powertools Governed Metrics Service) but apparently it doesn't have any place for us to include the labels. It only provides the fields:

  • ID
  • UID
  • MetricSubject
  • MetricType
  • MetricName
  • MetricDescription
  • MetricFormula
  • MetricGrouping
  • MetricOwner
  • MetricTags
  • MetricColor

Any clue? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

have you tried wrapping the variable in a dollar sign expansion?

$(=$(var))

Hi, David.

Yes, I already tried to do that. But all the extensions we've found until now, apparently treat the label as a string (like old Qlik versions did), not as an expression. So, at the end, the visualization will show: "$(=$(var))", instead of its value.
