Hi all,

May i know if there is any way to change the colors of the bars in this screenshot? I want the grey part to display on the bottom, and the orange part should be on top. Can I do this by modifying the Simple XML?

Thanks in advance

Yes, you can deliberately assign colors to series (in order) rather than letting Splunk make the assignements:

With Splunk... the answer is always "YES!". It just might require more regex than you're prepared for!

Hi there,

Actually my question is not about assign colour, colour doesn't matter. These two colour stand for different things A and B, my question is how to switch the location of A and B. Currently A is on the top, what i want is to display it on the bottom.

The issue has been fixed by rename A and B. I supposed it is due to the order of first letter of A and B.

Thanks for your support and kindness.

Output order is important and can be controlled using the 'table' command to switch A and B.

Yes, Agreed. We can leave this one, since the question asked about changing the colors. 🙂

hqw: It would be wonderful if you created another question asking about changing the appearance order of series. Show your search and the result here, and then answer it yourself, showing your solution and the new image... you might add the bit about color order too (the colors are in an indexed array, so the order matters, although you can name them specifically too. You'll get Karma points and people like @gcato can put there variations up there too!
