I have changed the labels in the XMD for my Einstein analytics Dashboard and these are not changing on the Columns in the data table, is there a known issue with Formula Fields or something is the XMD that prevent the label value from being changed? Or is there another way?

I was able to change many of the other field label values in the same Dataset. One is a date field the other is a formula field.

XMD Change 1

XMD Change 2

In XMD : you need to change it in the dimensions.


{ "conditionalFormatting": {}, "customActions": [], "customActionsEnabled": true, "field": "Opportunity.CloseDate", "label": "Close Date", "linkTemplateEnabled": true, "members": [], "recordDisplayFields": [], "salesforceActions": [], "salesforceActionsEnabled": true, "showInExplorer": false },

  • Sorry where is the xmd? is this the JSON file that we can download from data manager > dataflows & recipes ?
