Stats and chart command output response showing differently for date column

Path Finder

Hello Splunkers,

I want your help to understand different responses of stats and chart command output. In First output with STATS command, date and time showing correctly in the last column.

index=index1*|.....

| search issueType = "Bug" AND (Status = "In QA" OR Status = "In Dev") AND (priority = P1 OR priority = P2 OR priority= P3) AND (key = "CORE-26985" OR key = "CORE-37789")
| stats min(update) as qaStatusDateMin by key,Status
alt text

But when I use chart command then only year is showing instead of date and time under newly generated columns named "In QA" and "In Dev"

| fillnull value="None" labels
| search issueType = "Bug" AND (Status = "In QA" OR Status = "In Dev") AND (priority = P1 OR priority = P2 OR priority= P3) AND (key = "CORE-26985" OR key = "CORE-37789")
| chart min(update) as qaStatusDateMin by key,Status

I hope, I have explained my question here in detail. Please help me to understand the logic behind this output response.

Your help will be appreciated!

Hello @vikas_baranwal

The difference start comes in pictures when you mention two or more fields in by clause in Splunk.

When you use stats count by a,b , it will created status based on the a & b which is visible easily in your search results.

But when it comes to chart command it doesn't follow the same process. Because you need to create a graph. the command will be identical to chart over a by b
in your case: | chart min(update) as qaStatusDateMin over key by Status

There is No logic behind it. As chart command need three axis for data showing. It will convert the command in different logic , so that the data can be visible better in any visualisation.
