How can I add a column with filtered data from another table in DirectQuery mode?

I have the following 2 tables in a PBI Report Server, which uses DirectQuery and are linked by well_id and id:



I need to add a column in the wells table, with the AliasName which AliasNameTypeID = 'opendes:reference-data--AliasNameType:WellCommonName:'

Basically move the AliasName column to the wells table in the following query (but using DAX)


Any Ideas? Thanks in advance!

@santiago_ortiz , across-table operations are not supported other than related in (One side to many sides) in a calculated column
