Hi @yvassilyeva! You can use an overlay in a bar chart with the overlayFields option in the source code. Here's an example from our Examples Hub for a field named host8:

{
    "type": "splunk.column",
    "options": {
        "overlayFields": "host8"    
},
    "dataSources": {
        "primary": "ds_search2"
    },
    "title": "Overlay",
    "context": {}
}

@mpalarchio Thank you, that worked! Have you done multiple overlay chart that you can View by Axis - that's the option in classic dashboards?
