useless pie chart format options

Path Finder


I want to gererate a pie chart, and use the following lines. But I find some options are useless.

  1. legend.placement=top. There is no legend in the chart.
  2. charting.sliceCollapsingThreshold=0.2. It always uses the default value 0.01.
  3. charting.sliceCollapsingLabel=Other User. It displays the dafault value "Other".

Is this a bug or i missed something? Is the option name in advanced view "charting. XXXX" or "charting.PieChart.XXXX"?

Thanks & Regards,

this works for me on Splunk 5.0.5:

<param name="charting.chart.sliceCollapsingThreshold">0</param> OR 
<param name="charting.chart.sliceCollapsingThreshold">0.00</param>

and this don't

<option name="charting.chart.sliceCollapsingThreshold">0</option>

It looks like it might actually be "charting.chart.sliceCollapsingThreshold" now.

The parameter names should be:

  • charting.legend.placement
  • charting.chart.PieChart.sliceCollapsingThreshold
  • charting.chart.PieChart.sliceCollapsingLabel

thank you for your reply, even so, it does not take effect.
