Floating Bubble Charts

A floating bubbles chart is based on two metrics and two attributes. This chart type is supported by all the data sources except Cloudera Search. It is supported by Solr v5.2 and higher.

To create a floating bubbles chart, see Creating Charts. Be sure to select Floating Bubbles as the chart type. The default settings used for floating bubble charts vary, based on the data source selected for the chart.

To configure the default settings for floating bubble charts for a data source:

  1. Edit the appropriate data source configuration. See Editing a Data Source Configuration.

  2. Select the Charts tab in the data source configuration wizard.

  3. On the Standard subtab of the Charts tab, select Floating Bubbles.
