Set chart type

Different chart types are available for SiGNAL- and metric-based widgets. Widgets configured with attributes can only display bar charts.

You can set the following chart types in the widget configuration dialog:

  • Column chart (vertical stacked)

    Values are vertically arranged on top of each other. The distribution of the values is represented by the bar stripes. The resulting bar represents the total value.

  • Bar chart (horizontal stacked)

    Values are horizontally arranged next to each other. The distribution of the values is represented by the bar stripes. The resulting bar represents the total value.

  • Column chart (vertical)

    Values are represented as vertical bars.

  • Bar chart (horizontal)

    Values are represented as horizontal bars.

  • Tree map

    Hierarchical data is displayed as nested rectangles.

  • Pie chart

    Values are represented as pie slices to show relative sizes of data.

  • Dual axis chart

    The values of two metrics are displayed to illustrate the relationships between the metrics.

    You need to select two metrics in the widget configuration dialog, otherwise the chart can't be created.

    The bars represent the values of the first selected metric, the graph the values of the second selected metric. To swap the representation, change the order of the metrics.

  • Heat map

    You need to select two metrics in the widget configuration dialog, otherwise the chart can't be created.

    The values of two metrics are represented by colored fields. This type of visualization is helpful to identify patterns. The color scale represents the range between the minimum value and the maximum value. The value range can be reduced to any range of interest by moving the sliders.

  • Table

    You need to select two metrics in the widget configuration dialog, otherwise the table can't be created.

    The values are represented in a table.

Drill down into data

Explore multidimensional data by navigating from one level down to a more detailed one. For this, you don't need to configure a new widget.

To drill down into your data, click in the widget and select an option. The result set is opened as a new widget.

The following options are available:

  • Break down by another attribute you select

  • View over time

  • View distribution

Which option is available depends on whether you have selected data in the widget.

Add a threshold

You can add a threshold to define boundaries for different regions of acceptance. You have the following options to set and visualize the threshold:

  • Line

    The threshold is displayed as a dashed line including the threshold value and label:

  • 2 region

    Different background colors for the upper and lower region are assigned:

  • 3 regions

    A second threshold can be set to define an upper and lower threshold. This results in three regions: Above the upper threshold, below the lower threshold, and between the thresholds:

Follow these steps:

  1. Click in the widget.

  2. Click Threshold.

    The threshold configuration dialog opens.

  3. Select the threshold option of your choice or select None to remove the threshold.

  4. Enter the value and the label for the threshold.

  5. To change the assignment of the three available background colors, click the color bar and select the color of your choice. To swap the color assignment, click Swap color order.

  6. Confirm with Save.

    The threshold is added according to your settings.

When you add thresholds to a widget, you can link it to a Live Insights shape in SAP Signavio Process Manager. Read more in section Add Live Insights.

Add a filter based on selected data

You can select one or multiple bars and use this selection to set a filter:

  1. Select the data.

    You can select a single bar, a range of bars, and multiple individual bars.

  2. Click in the widget and choose an option:

    • Filter investigation

    • Filter chapter

    • Filter widget

    You can include or exclude the selected data.

    The data is filtered.

Export as CSV

The CSV export is available for widgets that are configured with metrics or a SiGNAL query.

Follow this step:

  • To export the widget data, click in the widget and select Export as CSV.

    The file is saved to your browser's download folder. The delimiter used is a comma.

Values for cycle time are always exported as milliseconds. If you need a different time format, you need to convert the milliseconds outside of SAP Signavio Process Intelligence.
