If I have a table like this:
TestName , OS , IsSuccessfull, , TestID T1 , Windows , True , 1 T1 , Linux , True , 2 T2 , Windows , False , 3 T2 , Linux , False , 4
I can chart the data and get something like this:
| chart latest(IsSuccessfull) over TestName by OS TestName, Windows, Linux T1 , True , True T2 , False , False
From here I would like to be able to drilldown to another dashboard which gives more detail about a specific test when given the TestID but the problem is the chart command removes all the fields it doesn't use so TestID disappears.
<drilldown> <link> /app/TESTING/TestDetails?TestID=$row.TestID$</link> <--- Can't do this </drilldown>
Is there a way I can keep the associated TestID when I'm not displaying it in the table? Or is there some other way to do this?
Any help much appreciated!
The OS fields are populated by the data so they are not "fixed" but there are only a limited amount that I am expecting.
Yes, the chart command gets displayed in a table just like the second one in my original question.
And are you doing a row level drilldown or cell level? Since there can be multiple OS, for a TestName (one row), there will be multiple TestIDs, so if you're doing a row level drilldown, you want all TestIDs?
That's a good point. Actually I think I need the cell level drilldown because I want the one TestID corresponding with the latest instance of a test against an OS. So maybe I need something like $cell.TestID$ ? I'll look into this on Monday.
From your question you seem to be passing TestID from table to another dashboard. However, if you perform statistical function you will get multiple values for T1 there are two test IDs 1 and 2. Please confirm what is the expected behavior.
The above drilldown that you have defined should work directly with first table that you have mentioned in the question.
Yep, the drilldown does work from the first table. If I can though, I'd like to display the data in the second format (after the chart command) while still being able to drilldown using the TestID.
To give more context to the data, the TestID is actually a unique guid generated per test run and the tests are python scripts so for example I might run the same test five times against Windows and get something like this:
TestName , OS , IsSuccessfull, TestID , _time
sync_test.py , Windows , True , ff744f19-47d9-4e1f-895c-53329f2ad715 , 10:20
sync_test.py , Windows , False , bd4b8519-1f29-4905-a283-5e7e81f8425b , 10:15
sync_test.py , Windows , False , a65f8aa7-b96f-4403-9647-e05912503f2f , 10:10
sync_test.py , Windows , True , 17e87c6a-4411-4e29-af4e-61c829272e8c , 10:05
sync_test.py , Windows , True , bad81240-b797-4244-bf05-166311830d3f , 10:00
The only one I care about and want to display in my table is the latest one so in this case I should get
TestName , Windows
sync_test.py , True
Hope that makes sense.
When you print out in table using simple xml fields option you can hide the column you want to use for drill down but not show to the user. However, at some point of time you need to have logical name for your test IDs so that user can select the same. In your case you can keep that as _time.
Edit Simple XML Dashboards and add the following for your table
This way you will not display TestID, but you can use the same for your Drilldown
<drilldown> <link> /app/TESTING/TestDetails?TestID=$row.TestID$</link> </drilldown>
