Configuring How a Filtered Widget Behaves

When fields that are visible in a widget are filtered, the resulting data can be displayed in Slice/Filter mode or Highlight mode.
For example, a column chart shows the up time value for different printers. If the chart is set to Highlight mode and you filter a subset of printers, the selected printers are highlighted in the chart.

If the chart is set to Slice/Filter mode, all the printers that were not selected are removed from the chart.

To set the filtering mode:
  1. Click Dashboards tab, the Dashboards tab, and select a dashboard from the list.
  2. Create or edit a widget.
    For more information, see Creating Widgets or Editing Widgets.
  3. In the Widget Designer, click the Filters tab on the right.

  4. In the Filters panel, select Slice/Filter or Highlight.
  5. Click Apply.
