Binding users to trueChart in Power BI
Since trueChart is a multi-user environment, it is necessary to supply a user identification. There are two possible ways described in the following sections: Entering the user name directly, or using a User name measure.
The user name can be applied directly through intial screen and click on OK-button.
|By entering a user name directly in the trueChart visual, you will share your user identification when publishing the report. To avert this, use a user name measure instead as described in the next section.|
|When changing the user name, it is necessary to reload the report for the changes to take effect.|
In the Home tab, section External data, click on Enter Data.
In the Create Table dialog, enter a name for the new table. You may want to use a prefix (e.g.
~) to make the table appear at the beginning/end in
the table list of the Fields pane.
Click on Load to create the new table.
In the Fields pane, right-click on the new table and choose New measure.
Enter the DAX formula to create a column Username with the current user’s name as its value.
You may now delete the redundant Column1 column by right-clicking on it and choosing Delete.
|If you happen to supply both a static user name and a user name measure, the latter will apply.|
