does someone has an experience in managing Data Source.
In example, I have created a list of KPIs. After that, When I create a graph, I select a list of KPIs that will define this new graph, and give a name to this new datasource (I will call it 'mydatasource').
But, If I forget a KPIS, I don't know how to modify its description. And I have to create a new graph with a new data source definition. It is not so nice.
So my question is how to modify a data source (add a new KPIs) ?
Thanks in advance.
When data are displayed in a portlet, they are colored in random arbitrary colors. Subjects in a line graph, for example, are each colored in random colors.
In some cases, the colors can be predetermined. This is the case when the color is used to differentiate between Entity Property values in a closed list. A closed list is a list whose values are all known in advance. An example of such an Entity Property is Defect Severity. The values for this property are "[stupid is as stupid does]," "important," and "unimportant," and thus create a closed list.
This Entity Property's colors, and other such properties' colors, are preset in the Dashboard database. Is it possible to modify the coloring of an existing Entity Property or to set a coloring to a new Entity Property?
Modifying the preset colors for existing and new Entity Properties
It is possible to modify the preset colors and to create preset coloring for new and existing Entity Properties. To do so requires manually editing the Dashboard coloring tables.
After creating a new closed list Entity Property, its preset coloring can be assigned doing the following:
1. Open BTOD_SCHEME table for editing .
2. Add a line for the new Entity Property with the following settings:
SCHEME_NAME should be "default."
PROPERTY should be the concatenation of <Entity> :: <Entity Property>.
COLOR_SET should be any meaningful name.
3. Edit the BTOD_COLOR_SET table. For each new value in the entity property add a line in the table.
SET_NAME is the same as COLOR_SET in BTOD_SCHEME table.
BTOD_KEY is the Etity Poperty' value.
BTOD_VALUE is the color. The color can be specified in word ("blue," "pink," "yellow," etc.), or as an RGB code in the format of #xxxxxx where the x's stand for hexadecimal digits.
4. Repeat steps 1-3 for all the Entity Property's values.
For each Entity Property there is a color for the "" value. This value is a default value in all entity properties and should be treated as all other values -- in this case, an entry should be created for it in the table and it should be assigned a color value.
When modifying existing Entity Properties' preset colors, steps 1 and 2 should be skipped. The entries in BTOD_COLOR_SET should be modified to your liking.
When editing the database be very careful. Take care not to create double entries."
But Does not work on my system... I don't see the color entry in the color source when I want to update the portlet.
