Show display name on dashboard based on parameter

Hi there. We have a dashboard that takes in a unique GUID as a parameter. This GUID is then applied to a filter so all our data shows the appropriate client.

I’d like to show a text/string representation of the display name of the client associated with the GUID. This way, we get a human readable verification (on the dashboard) of the client we are displaying.

I have a datasource that contains the table that includes the GUID and display name but cannot find an appropriate control or way to configure the parameter to perform this action.

Example below:

  1. Parameter = ‘1234-5678-9012’
  2. Display Name = ‘Client A’

I’d like to have a Text Box type control on the top of the dashbaoard that renders as “Client A”

@goosh Hi
I don’t think you can do this.
can’t imagine BI can have scripting allowed for displaying conditional titles.

Hi @goosh
What if you are creating a table visual with the “display name” field and filter the table on parameter?

Hi @goosh
could you find a solution?
