Tree components

Tree components summarize data by one or more fields from your data source. Tree components are not dependent on date or time, so you can display them without using date and time filters. If based on a filter, they retrieve the result set and group the selected fields, providing a summary of your data rather than the full results. If filters are absent, all data for the selected fields is displayed from the data source.

Tree components require a primary series, and the sort values are applied based on the primary series you select.

Within a single tree component, you can have multiple independent series, each retrieved from different a data source if required. You can also set up a calculated series, which is a new series based on a mathematical expression that uses values from the other series as parameters. When using a calculated series, you have the option to hide any series used in the calculation.

Another property of the tree component is that you can break down values from a single field into the hierarchy. Where a data field contains a hierarchy structure (such as First.Second.Third), the tree component can split this into separate values and insert them into the hierarchy using a hierarchy field. See the example below. 

This example displays the same data, but in the case on the left, the Incident Area is specified as a hierarchy field with a delimiter of ".".  The values are then split based on the delimiter, and a hierarchy is created.

Tree-component series

Follow the next procedure to define a tree-component series. Tree components can display multiple, independent series at one time, meaning you can view data from multiple data sources within a single tree component if desired.

Tree-component hierarchies

Where a data field contains a hierarchy structure (such as First.Second.Third), the tree component can split the structure into separate values and insert them into the hierarchy using a hierarchy field.  

Calculated series

A calculated series enables you to create a new series for the tree component based on a mathematical expression that uses values from the other series as parameters. When using a calculated series, you have the option to hide any series used in the calculation.
