i create one index per month, which are grouped in a data view. There is a keyword field in the index which contains a string representation of the month that the index was created like 'May 2023'.
Up until now i used the old Metric, now Legacy Metric to show this string in the Dashboard. Such that a user always knows to which month the current data belongs. The last value function is fine, as within an index every field has the same value and there is always only data from one index in the dashboard. (Filtered by control)
I tried to switch to the new Metric to avoid problems in future releases, when Legacy Metric might be removed. But as it turns out, the Last value function is disabled for keyword fields in the new Metric.
Is this intended or just overlooked up until now?
If you are not planning to allow last value for keyword fields, how are you supposed to simply show some string in a dashboard? Am i supposed to create a table with one element?
