Color options

You can choose whether to use colors in a punchcard. If you choose not to use colors, all circles appear in the same color. If you opt to use colors in the diagram, select one of the following color modes.


Use different colors to distinguish circles based on metric field values. To use this mode, each event must have a categorical field that applies to the aggregate.


Use color_field values from the query to show links in different shades between the minimum and maximum color.

Specify minimum and maximum colors and the number of bins for search results.


Opt to set x-axis labels on an angle. Use a 45-degree angle if labels are overlapping.
