Dimensions and Metrics order in DMI


When you create a DMI in a table format, you always get the Dimensions in the first couple of columns and then the Metrics in the last couple of columns.

How can I Control the order of the columns so that the Metric "Operations" follow directly after the Dimension "Operation".

If you try to sort them under the "Subject data" tab, you can only sort on either Dimensions or Metrics, never the two together.

Hi Ulf,

Unfortunately this is the limitation of DMI. Mixing up the order of dimensions and metrics is forbidden. You can only sort on either Dimensions or Metrics

Well - I was suspecting something like that but I had a ray of hope...


On the bright side I have that enhancement already on my list. In coming release we might be able to tackle that but I can't promise anything at the moment.

Yes - we know you are like Santa Claus - but you need to grow a beard 😉 !
