Group components

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

Group components require a primary series, and the top/sort values are applied based on the primary series selected.

Within a single group component, you can have multiple independent series, each retrieved from a different data source if desired. You can also set up a calculated series, which performs a mathematical calculation based on one or more of the other series in the component. If you have key performance indicators that require a more complex analysis of the data, a calculated series is recommended.

Group component series

Group components can display multiple independent series at one time, meaning you can view data from more than one data source within a single group component if desired.

Calculated series

You can define a calculated series that performs a mathematical calculation using values from one or more of the other series in a group component. By doing so, a new series is created that can provide a more complete analysis of the key performance indicators you're interested in viewing. When using a calculated series, you have the option of hiding the other series used in the calculation.

Several mathematical expressions are available for creating a calculated series, as described below.
