Group components

Group components summarize data by one or more fields from a data source. When based on a filter, they retrieve the result set and group data 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 create multiple series of data that are independent of each other, each retrieved from a different data source. You also have the option of defining a separate calculated series that aggregates the data across those same data sources, which is recommended when you need a more complete analysis of key performance indicators.

Group component series

A single group component can support multiple series of data that are independent of each other, each retrieved from a different data source if needed.

Calculated series

You can define a calculated series that performs a mathematical calculation using values from the other series defined for the group component. In doing so, a new series is created that aggregates the data, providing a more complete analysis of key performance indicators. 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.

For more guidance on how to define a calculated series for time, group, and scoreboard components, see the Calculated Series video on the Ivanti community website.
