How to show values only for data overlay in a chart?

Explorer

I have a bar chart with a data overlay in it. The chart shows the data values for the fields "Error" "Warn" and "Total". I require the chart to show values only for the field "Total". Other two fields "Error" and " Warn" should not show any values. alt text

Hi,

try this option within your XML:

<option name="charting.data.fieldHideList">["Error","Warn"]</option>

Best regards

This option is hiding the fields Error and Warn. I want the chart for these fields, but it should hide the data values for these fields.

When you open up the edit visualization you can turn off the "Show Data Values". This will turn off the overlay values for all fields though. You can get the values by hovering over each part of the chart but it doesn't look like there is an easy way to get just "Totals" to show the value. For the option <option name="charting.chart.showDataLabels">all</option>, only "all", "none", and "minmax" are available options. Here is the Chart XML reference: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.0.2/Viz/ChartConfigurationReference. In order to get the value for just the total it might require some javascript behind the dashboard.

I have this option already enabled this option. It will enable datavalues for all fields. However I was looking to enable datavalue only for certain fields.
