Dashboards & Visualizations

Is it possible to change the thousand separator and decimal separator according to European conventions (e.g. 10.000,234)?

Hi there,

Is there a way to change decimal and the thousand separate to European conventions?
For example, I would like the default to be : 10.000,234 (instead of 10,000.234)
Is this possible without converting numeric values to strings?
It would like this to work in particular for dashboards.

Thanks for your help

Check this


Also, its worth checking fieldformat command. It wont change underlying value hence it is good for charting purposes.

Thanks for your help. However, unless I'm missing something, it seems that the methods described there output strings. For example:

... | fieldformat number = replace(replace(replace(number,"\.","#"),",","."),"#",",")

outputs the correct format, but it will be of string type. If I wrap the right-hand side in tonumber() it does not output anything (null), probably because it does not recognize the number format...

-- Edit --
The example above only works for replacing the . (dot) by a, (comma). I think because the default thousands separators (comma's) are added afterwards by splunk.
