The Status history visualization shows periodic states over time. Each field or series is rendered as a horizontal row. Boxes are rendered and centered around each value.
Status history visualization works with string, boolean and numerical fields or time series. A time field is required. You can use value mappings to color strings or assign text values to numerical ranges.
Use these options to refine the visualization.
Controls whether values are rendered inside the value boxes. Auto will render values if there is sufficient space.
Controls the width of boxes. 1 = maximum space and 0 = minimum space.
Controls line width of state regions.
Controls the opacity of state regions.
To assign colors to boolean or string values, use the Value mappings.
Time series data with thresholds
The panel can be used with time series data as well. In this case, the thresholds are used to color the boxes. You can also use gradient color schemes to color values.
When the legend option is enabled it can show either the value mappings or the threshold brackets. To show the value mappings in the legend, it’s important that the
Color scheme option under Standard options is set to
Single color or
Classic palette. To see the threshold brackets in the legend set the
