I am generating a timeline custom visualization. The panel left does not fit all the characters present in resource field.

How can i increase the width of the panel?

I'm still experiencing the same issue in Splunk Enterprise, Version:7.3.3, Build:7af3758d0d5e.

Is there a way to fix this nowadays?

Hi @sarthakb,

Unfortunately the labels are a fixed width and there is no good workaround to change it in the current version. We'll consider adding some control to that in a future update. Are you seeing overflow or are they truncating acceptably?

Thanks for the feedback.


Thanks for the Reply. This will be great Help.

Can i also request for one more feature -

If we use Multi Color - the colors for different categories are picked automatically. Can we set - for e.g.
if the Value of Color field is "ERROR" show in RED color.

Hi @sarthakb,
Thanks for your observations on labels and for the feature enhancement request. We are looking into making updates in these areas in an upcoming release. Please stay tuned!

Hope this helps!

@sarthakb @frobinson_splunk color can be overridden using Simple XML CSS extension, refer to couple of my older answers:

| makeresults | eval message= "Happy Splunking!!!"
