Using Parameters in Measures that are then used in a Legend

We have a measure that uses the values of a parameter in its calculation of OK/not OK. This works great in our table. However, we want to show this in a visual using that measure as the legend. We can't get this to work.

 

I have created a sample Power BI report showing this exact problem. Does anyone have a way to get this to work?

Another working solution that avoids using the legend field is by creating a measure for each of the ok and no ok. Then, you just add them both to the dataset for the visual. Power BI then adds them to the legend area of the visual.

Hi, I still didn't get a solution as to whether it is possible to solve the issue with the legend. Though, if someone can tell me this isn't possible, I can mark that is the correct answer. I have only found workarounds so far, but haven't had anyone say straight forward this isn't possible. Thanks.

I had one developer show me a solution using a cartesian product done in Power Query and then using the parameter to filter the result and then using that for legend. This won't work in my case, but it is a solution.
