Access the current report name from within the report

Hi,

 

   I am trying to display additional metadata like Report owner information in a report. I have a data set that holds all the report names and their owners. How do I filter the dataset with the report name of the current report to display that information within the report? Is the report name or its id accessible from within the report?

 

For example: I have a report CustomerChurn. I have imported a dataset that lists

Report Name      Owner Name

CustomerChurn   John Doe

Regional Sales     Jane Doe

 

Now I want to create a card that shows 'Report owner: CustomerChurn' within this report. That is possible only if I am able to filter based on the report name. Any suggestions/inputs will be of great help!

@AG_L , Not very clear to me

Will a measure like this work?

 

measure = maxX(Table,Table[Report Name] & " : " & Table[Owner Name])

Hi Amit,

   The question was not just to show the table Report name, Owner from the dataset. It was more to show only the entry relevant to the current Report. Which means, we need to filter REport name in dataset with the current report's name (as I have explained in the example). Hence the question was , can we get the report's own name from the report.

Unfortunately, there is no way to identify and display report owner name in the report.
