Custom Label - String Replacement

Is there a way on a custom label where I can remove phrases in the string? For example I have an executive dashboard and one of the items says ‘Active Directory Topology Root’. I would like to have it say only ‘Active Directory’.

You can easily remove certain parts of the label using replace. For example, the following would replace “Active Directory Topology Root” with “Active Directory”.

{{displayName.replace("Active Directory Topology Root", "Active Directory")}}

To remove it completely, just pass an empty string as the second parameter, e.g.

{{displayName.replace("Active Directory Topology Root", "")}}

Let me know if that works for you!

Thank you! That worked perfectly!

What if you had multiple objects in a scope? What would be the syntax for changing 3 or 4 of the labels out of say 10 objects?

You can use if statements:
