Renaming a measure

I want to rename a measure from the model.

I try it from the model in the tables part and then "Display Name". 

But after changing it I see the original name in the discovery and nothing changes.

    You have 3 options where you can change a measure within model. 

    1. Within a Data Flow 

    2.  Within Data Model > Tables > Right Click then select Rename 

    3. Within Data Model > Columns > right click on the Column then select Rename 

    For all these options you need to Run and Process the model so that the changes can be saved. Then in discover click on Refresh Metadata or Rerun the discover to see the changes.  


    Hope this helps 馃檪

    Thanks for the reply.

    After renaming as the 3rd option and running the model I'm still can't see the changes in the discover even after refresh metadata.

    Any idea why?

    That's actually renaming the attribute (column).
    To rename the measure go here in the tables view:

    or here in the column view:
