Bar Chart Widget

Bar chart widgets can be used to display the results of a search, in the form of a bar graph, directly on the Dashboard. The results of this search are updated on the widget every time the Dashboard is refreshed.

Configure a Bar Chart Widget

When configuring the bar chart widget type, the following specifications are available:



Saved Search(Optional.) Open the drop-list and select a Saved Search to use as the focus of the bar chart.
Primary MetricSelect a primary metric to display in the bar chart. Click in the field and scroll or search to find a metric.

Check this option to include blank values in the widget results. By default, blank values are not displayed in widget results.

This option is also available for the Submetric.


(Optional.) Click Add Submetric to include a submetric in the bar chart, which creates a stacked bar chart.
