I can repro the same issue as you. I’ve reported it internally to Power BI Team: CRI 42023525
I’ll post here once I get any update about it.

I’ve got response from the Product Team.

 

By design, we do not support rename for hierarchies.

Hi Herbert,

 

I hope this issue doesn't fall off the radar now that it has been closed.

 

Are you sure the team understood you correctly? I'm not saying I want to rename the hierarchy, just the columnname. Just because it happens to be in a hierarchy shouldn't mean we can't rename it imho.

 

If it's really "by design" than I would love to know why it was designed that way :-)

And whether it's on the roadmap to be implemented at a future date.

I'd like this too. I can rename the column if I use it in isolation. But not if I use it in a hierarchy - which means mmy column headers in my drill are meaningless
