Advanced charting options

Charts in dashboards and other views are highly customizable. The customizations available using simple XML also apply to views and dashboards created with advanced XML. You can make a wide variety of customizations in simple XML using the Panel Editor, available from Splunk Web. For example, you can change chart axis labels, define color ranges for gauges, configure stacking modes for column and bar charts, and much more.

When the basic customization options offered in simple XML are not enough, you can go "under the hood" and edit the XML directly to customize the appearance and behavior of charts in additional ways.

You can customize the appearance of charts using either simple XML or advanced XML. The syntax for charts differs slightly between simple and advanced XML. For example, in simple XML syntax, charting controls are specified with option attributes. In advanced XML, you specify the same thing using params to a HiddenChartFormatter module.

For details on chart customization for both simple XML and advanced XML, refer to Chart customization in the Splunk Data Visualizations manual.
