Saving Derived Data

There are two available options when saving Derived Data.

  1. Saving derived data with full context

    This is the default option, when the entire context of the derived data expression can be captured and re-used. In our earlier example, the definition of derived data includes Label, Dimensions, Measures, and Filters:

  2. Saving derived data expression only

    When selected the Expression Only option, only the expression of the base field is saved. The advantage here is that a complicated expression may be reused in any context.

    In this case, the definition of derived data includes just the Label and the Measures.
