Retrieve measure groupName

Marius Hulduban asked on April 23, 2021

for apply some logic we need to retrieve the “groupName” field (retrived by “DiscoverMeasures http call”).
We try with “getMeasures” api, but in the Flexmonster.Measure class there is no groupName field.
There is any way to get it?

Hello, Marius,
Thank you for reaching out to us.
We want to confirm that the groupName property cannot be accessed from the outside. Currently, it is used to maintain the internal structure.
Could you please provide us with some details on the functionality you try to achieve? It would allow us to get a better understanding of your use case and find a suitable solution.
We are looking forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards,

HI Illia,
we expose data of various type, and the final user can choose from “fields popup” some combination that “are not valid” (link some fact and dimension that are not linked).
We need that information on Measure class, so we can apply some “check logic” and if needed show a warning message.
For this scenario, i have another question for you, there is any callback that we can use, for handling “apply button” on “fields popup”? At the moment we found one report’s callback, but it’s applied after the popup has been closed.
Kind regards

Hello, Marius,
Thank you for providing us with details.
We will expose the groupName property so that it is returned by the getMeasures and `getAllMeasures` API calls. This will be included in the minor update ETA May 17. Our team will notify you as soon as the appropriate version is available to download.
Concerning your question about the callback of the “Apply” button.
We want to explain that the built-in Field List does not provide an option to retrieve the configured slice before it is applied.
If the configuration needs to be adjusted before applying it to the component, we suggest developing a custom Field List that would suit your needs.
We have a sample demonstrating implementation of the custom Field List for SSAS data source: Custom Field List with prefiltering for SSAS – JSFiddle – Code Playground.
Please note that it is only a sample, it may need to be complemented or modified in order to suit your needs.
We hope it helps.
Do not hesitate to contact us in case other questions arise.
