Time Series Insights
The Time Series Insights block is an interactive UI component that visualizes a large amount of time-oriented data. Time Series Insights allows comparing data at run-time based on asset ID by dropping markers on the chart, as well as panning and zooming, and can show and hide specific assets or parameters via the hierarchy panel. Time Series Insights connects directly to Azure through its Environment FQDN, Tenant Id, Client Id, and Client Secret. For more details, visit the official Azure Time Series Insights documentation.

Time Series Chart Properties

Appearance

Common Properties

The visibility property is common to most Blocks;

Show Legend

Determines if the legend is displayed or not.

Show Hierarchy

This determines whether the Hierarchy is displayed. The hierarchy is the left panel containing a tree grid that allows you to modify the selected assets and parameters.

Allow Hierarchy Selection

This determines whether the hierarchies dropdown at the top of the hierarchy panel is shown. The dropdown allows you to narrow down the hierarchies shown to the items in the selected top-level hierarchy.

X Axis Label Format

Determines how the date is formatted on the x-axis of the chart and pan & zoom panel.
Label Format

12-Hour Clock (2 Lines)
12-Hour Clock (1 Line)
24-Hour Clock (2 Lines)
24-Hour Clock (1 Line)

Enable Toolbar

Determines whether the toolbar is displayed or not. The toolbar contains the button to change the y-axis type and the ellipsis menu.

Enable Display Grid

Determines whether the ellipsis menu contains the Display Grid option, which shows the selected data in a grid.

Enable Download as CSV

Determines whether the ellipsis menu contains the Download as CSV option, which allows you to download the selected data as a CSV file.

Pan & Zoom Mode

This determines how the Pan & Zoom panel is displayed. Setting it to "Hidden" will remove the panel entirely, while "Compact" is a single-line component, and "Full" will display a Pan & Zoom with secondary panning and zooming for fine-tuning the selection.

Pan & Zoom Color

This determines the color of the Pan & Zoom component.

Interval Size

This determines the default value for the Interval Size slider. The slider allows you to fine-tune the granularity of the displayed data. The displayed line chart data will be averaged over this interval.

Range

This determines the starting date for the Pan & Zoom. The end date of the Time Series Chart is determined by the row with the latest timestamp. The Pan & Zoom range will update automatically with live data.

Initial Selection

This determines the time interval that is initially selected in the Pan & Zoom component and, correspondingly, the line chart. The selection will always start at the right side of the Pan & Zoom component.

Show Tooltip On Hover

This determines whether a tooltip will appear when the cursor hovers over a line. The tooltip will display the values of the hovered point on the line.

Enable Zoom

Determines whether you can click and select on the chart to zoom into the selection.

Show X Axis

This determines whether the x-axis line and labels for the line chart are shown.

Show Y Axis

This determines whether the y-axis line and labels for the line chart are shown.

Default Y Axis Type

This determines the default Y Axis type, which can be changed at run-time using the button at the top-left corner of the line chart.
If set to "Stacked" the selected parameters will be separated into different panes stacked vertically. If set to "Shared" the selected parameters will share a single pane with a single y-axis from the lowest to highest values in any line. If set to "Overlap", the selected parameters will share a single pane with multiple y-axes, with the lowest and highest value of each line chart displayed on the axis at the bottom and top.

Show Dots

Determines whether the points on the lines will display as dots.

Interpolation Function

This property allows you to define how the lines behave in the line charts.

Palette

You can specify a custom color for each parameter in the line chart. If the number of parameters is greater than the number of colors specified, the colors will repeat.

Behavior

Recommendations

The Alerts for selected Recommendations will be displayed at run-time as markers on the chart: the Alert's created time is used as the timestamp and its title as the text.
Known limitations:
  • The marker title space is limited and the Alert title may be truncated.
  • Some HTML special characters (e.g.<) used in the Alert title will be encoded.

Entity ID

Specify an Entity ID field to filter the Recommendation Alerts.

Data Source

Use Variables

This allows you to choose between manually entering a value for the Environment FQDN, Tenant Id, Client Id, and Client Secret or selecting from static variables.

Environment FQDN, Tenant Id, Client Id, and Client Secret

These are the connection variables necessary for authentication and authorization for the Azure Time Series Insights API. For more information about the Azure Time Series Insights API, read the official Time Series Insights documentation.
The Environment FQDN, Tenant Id, Client Id, and Client Secret properties are required for the Time Series Insights Block.

Auto Refresh

This determines whether the Time Series Insights will automatically poll Azure for updated data.

Refresh Rate

The rate at which the Time Series Insights will poll for updated data.

Data

Default Selection

You can choose the line charts that the Time Series Insights will start with. If Group By Asset is disabled, you can select which parameters will be selected by default. If Group By Asset is enabled and a Hierarchy Data Source selected, you will be able to select which Hierarchy items will be selected by default for each parameter.
