How to customize names of dimensions and measures that show up in Fields list for an OLAP source

Answered
Nilesh Wagle asked on November 6, 2019

I want to rename some or all of the dimensions and measures that show up in the list of Fields that the user can drag into the layout. I know that there is a caption property on all the objects in the Slice but that only applies to the Fields that are in the layout. 
 
Is there a way to do the same for all the Fields from the data source that show up in the Fields list? 
I am using an OLAP database as source.
Thanks.

Hello, 
 
Thank you for writing to us.
 
We kindly suggest specifying the captions on the server-side for MS Analysis Services. 
Would such an approach work for you?
 
Best Regards,

Well, we looked into that but it is a little hard. Will it be possible for your team to add support for this?
