    Date when published data source extract was last refreshed

    Sam McKnight

      Here's my setup.

      1. I connect to a published data source. This published source uses an extract which is refreshed daily.

      2. In my workbook, I want to show when the data was last refreshed and the data source name.

       

      To accomplish #2, I add the Data Update Time placeholder to the workbook caption. But it says "Unknown Update Time". I add the Data Source Name placeholder and it is blank.

       

      Is there a way to show the published data source name?

      And is there a way to show when the published data source extract was last refreshed (without needing to create an extract of the published data source in the workbook)?

       

      My goal is to have better documentation in the dashboards about data update time and the source.
