Here i want to color the columns background based on previous column value

Nov 20 Dec 20

01(green bg)
110(red bg)
10(red bg)
95(red bg)
11(yellow bg)
11(yellow bg)
01(green bg)

 

Comparing condtions
if the current values is more than previous column value then it should have a green-background
if the current values is less than previous column value then it should have a red-background
if the current values is equal to previous column value then it should have a yellow-background

 This the query i am trying to use


| index=sample check=ERROR
| stats first(_time) as _time by SampleCode, Message
| rex mode=sed field=Message
"s/failed: //g
s/Order.ScenarioId/Order-ScenarioId/
s/([0-9])[\.|\_]([0-9])/\1\2/
s/[0-9]+//
s/(PREOK)?(ID)?([A-Z]+_[A-Z]+_?[A-Z]+)?(\b([A-Z]{1,}\b))?/\1\2\3/g
s/ / /"
| rex field=Message "^(?<ResponseMsg>[ a-zA-Z \-,]+)"
| timechart span=mon limit=0 count by ResponseMsg
| fields - _span, _spandays
| eval _time = strftime(_time,"%b %y")
| transpose 0 header_field=_time, column_name=ResponseMsg

A lot easier working from uncharted data

| index=sample check=ERROR
| stats first(_time) as _time by SampleCode, Message
| rex mode=sed field=Message
"s/failed: //g
s/Order.ScenarioId/Order-ScenarioId/
s/([0-9])[\.|\_]([0-9])/\1\2/
s/[0-9]+//
s/(PREOK)?(ID)?([A-Z]+_[A-Z]+_?[A-Z]+)?(\b([A-Z]{1,}\b))?/\1\2\3/g
s/ / /"
| rex field=Message "^(?<ResponseMsg>[ a-zA-Z \-,]+)"
| bin span=mon _time
| stats count by _time ResponseMsg
| sort ResponseMsg _time
| autoregress count as previousCount p=1
| autoregress ResponseMsg as previousMsg p=1
| eval sign=if(ResponseMsg=previousMsg,count-previousCount,null)
| eval sign = sign/abs(sign)
| fillnull value=0 sign
| eval sign=if(sign &lt; 0, "RED", if(sign &gt; 0, "GREEN", "YELLOW"))
| eval count=mvappend(count,sign)
| fields - sign previousCount previousMsg
| eval _time = strftime(_time,"%b %y")
| xyseries ResponseMsg _time count

The hidden panel sets up the style to hide the second multi-value on each row (which contains the required colour).

The first part of the query sets up your example data - I assumed you meant Jan and Feb 21 not 20

By parsing the month to epoch time format it can then be used to sort

Getting the next month allows it to be "joined" with the previous month with the stats command so each month has the previous months value for each message

For each field, evaluate if the value for the message is greater or less or equal to previous month's value and set colour accordingly

Sort by month again, then format to shown date format

Finally, convert back to desired table layout

Set colour palette according to value of (hidden) field

Its working fine with the'| makeresults' but the column with months are dynamic based on the time range we select . Is it possible to apply the same

The short answer to your question is yes it is possible.

Everything before the first transpose is to set up the data. It looks like you have got the data from a chart command, so the first transpose is to flip the data so that the rows are based on the dates. I suspect your data may already be available in this format or something close to it so perhaps this part can be changed by removing or at least moving your chart command until after the autoregress and determining whether the value is increasing or decreasing. Without seeing your actual query, it is difficult to tell you how to refactor it though. 

The essential elements of my suggestion that you would probably need to use are the converting the date to epoch format so it can be sorted (although you may already have the date in this format), the autoregress to get the previous month, the result in the second element of the multi-value fields, the colouring based on that element and the hiding of that result using the stylesheet.

The issue is the eval _time to a string before the xyseries so the order is not by epoch time.  However, if you remove this, the columns in the xyseries become numbers (the epoch time). To resolve this without disrupting the order is to use transpose twice, renaming the column values in between.

Tried with the query you gave but its not working as expected, When i check for last 30 days of data we are seeing most empty for Feb month and colors need to be applied based on previous months data. But we are seeing the yellow colors Bg-color on March month.
