How to set color series for specific fields for all its possible values without setting them from the beginning?

Hi,

I have a column chart that shows 1 field, but filters by others.

I want the columns to be different for each value of a specific selection field in the input, but I can not set for each value its color in the first place because I have something like 950 values (maybe more).

So if the user chooses to look at 3 values in the filter, he will see each value in a different color and know the color of each value.

I did not find anything like it, I just saw that the color should be set to each value from the beginning.
Can you help me?

You can use tokens to pass the colours, for example, if the first field in the filter is "locationX" set a token "firstcolour" to "0xff0000" or "red" or something appropriate, then use the $firstcolour$ token as the colour for the first series.

    <set token="firstcolour">0xff0000</set>
    <set token="secondcolour">0x00ff00</set>
    <set token="thirdcolour">0xffff00</set>
    <set token="fourthcolour">0x0000ff</set>
    <set token="fifthcolour">0x00ffff</set>

        <option name="charting.seriesColors">[$firstcolour$,$secondcolour$,$thirdcolour$,$fourthcolour$,$fifthcolour$]</option>
