Dashboards & Visualizations

How do I remove primaryAxisTitle & secondaryAxisTitle labels in advanced XML?

Path Finder

I did see the existing question/answer "Hide primaryAxisTitle and secondaryAxisTitle on Bar/Column chart in dashboard" but is there a way to do this in XML without editing CSS?

Here's the code I have. I have tried a few different things including removing the "primaryAxisTitle.text" & "secondaryAxisTitle.text" parameters altogether but it still selects default values to present:


<![CDATA[sourcetype="my_sourcetype" | timechart span=15m count(_raw) by field2]]>
-1h

column
bottom


My Chart

If you set them to a whitespace character they will be hidden:

<param name="primaryAxisTitle.text"> </param>

<param name="secondaryAxisTitle.text"> </param>

Splunk 6 provides support within Simple XML to explicitly hide the axis labels:

  <option name="charting.axisTitleX.visibility">collapsed</option>
  <option name="charting.axisTitleY.visibility">collapsed</option>

You're right, this is a bug. Stay tuned, we have the issue filed and we'll try to have a fix in a maintenance release soon.

The labels still occupy space this way.

Add these two parameters with a value of 0 in your HiddenChartFormatter:


param name=charting.primaryAxisTitle.height /param
param name=charting.primaryAxisTitle.margin /param

The question you referenced mentions changing CSS, but I just checked it on one of my forms and you don't have to. They may have modified the CSS to remove some of the whitespace.

This should've been the accepted answer!
So far, this has been the only way I've managed to completely hide the _time.

I modifyed it so it would work with our Simple XML charts.

The only case in which it got a little funky was when I had a timechart with the legend placed below the chart.

_time would still show up, half overlayed with the chart legend.

I fixed that by adding this in:
