Hi @triptraptresko !

If you were using the older viz.line type visualization, you would be correct about using the option fieldColors - however, you're using the newer splunk.line type, which uses an option called seriesColorsByField to accomplish the same thing. 

Try swapping the name of the options and it should work!
