Tree components

Tree components summarize data by one or more fields from your data source. When 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. Tree components are not dependent on date or time, so you can display them without using date and time filters. 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 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.

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

For example, the image below displays the same data on the left and right. On the left, the incidents are displayed in a hierarchy field—the values are split based on the "." delimiter (as seen on the right side) to create the hierarchy.

Tree component series

A single tree 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 tree 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.
