I often get the problem when this or that alias name is already used somewhere, and I can't easily find that variable or aggregation to release the name.

Is there some place in Tableau where I can view/edit/reset full list of aliases?

Finally solved the issue. You should go to:

Data –> your_data_source –> Edit Aliases –> Measure Names

And see full mapping between variables/aggregations and aliases.

Another way of editing alias for a member having multiple aliases:

  1. Right click the 'Measure Names' in Dimension panel.
  2. Select 'Aliases...'
  3. A small edit box appears with all the members having aliases.
  4. Edit/update alias for each member, as preferred.
  5. Press OK to save any changes made.
