Multiple Metric Bar Charts

  1. Edit the appropriate data source configuration. See Editing a Data Source Configuration.

  2. Select the Charts tab in the data source configuration wizard.

  3. On the Standard subtab of the Charts tab, select Bars: Multiple Metrics.

  4. Configure the settings as follows:

    Setting Description
    Group By Select the attribute by which the data should be grouped.
    Group By Limit Specify the number of attribute items that you want to be displayed on the chart. For example, you have up to 25 ranges of customer income (items), but want to view only 5 of them.
    Group By Sort Select a metric or the attribute by which the attribute items, you have selected to group by, will be sorted. You can also select the sorting order (ascending or descending).
