Retrieve the Current WorkspaceID in a Dataflow



I have a dataflow which should work with the same code in various different workspaces. Each workspace relates to a different customer and the data being processed change for each customer. So far I use a parameter in the dataflow for each Workspace. But I have to change this parameter manually. When I update the code of the dataflow, I need to copy and paste the new code into the dataflow, which overrides the parameter as well, so I have to change the parameter again. 


Is there a way to make this dynamically, e.g. that I would fetch the current URL aka WorkspaceID in PowerQuery, which I can then link to the customer through a mapping table. Something linke Current.Website or Current.Workspace? 


Any ideas?

Many Thanks.

Hey Henry, thanks for your reply. In a nutshell: I want the WorkspaceID to be fetched into a Dataflow, whether as a parameter or as a table entry. And this should work dynamically, so that whenever I copy und paste the Dataflow into another workspace, the WorkspaceID will be updated automatically by the Dataflow itself. Hope this helps.


Thanks for your support!
