display used datasource within a VA Dashboard

Does anyone know a method to display the datasource(s)  used for a report/dashboard within the reporting object itself.  Suppose I use a LASR table 'dim_customer'  and I want to list this tablename within the dashboard itself?

Re: display used datasource within a VA Dashboard

In the current release, there isn't a way to dynamically display the name of the data source(s) used by the report.  If your data sources used are not changing, you could include the name of the data sources in a text object on the report.  SAS is planning to add the name of data sources, and other dynamic text, to a future release of Visual Analytics.
