Pivot table

The pivot table view displays search results as a statistics chart that summarizes the data and provides insightful aggregations. It offers several visualization types (area chart, bar chart, heat map, and so on) and several aggregations (balance, first, maximum, and so on).

Fields

To add a field to the pivot table:

  1. In the Field section, click Add .
  2. Configure the following parameters:

    FieldTypeDescriptionValueMandatory
    FieldDrop-down listDefines a table field.List of available fields.Yes
    PositionRadio buttonsSets the field position.None / Row / ColumnYes
  3. Click Save.

Visualization

To configure the Pivot table visualization:

  1. In the Visualization zone, click Add .
  2. In the Type drop-down list, select an option.
  3. To enable the desired aggregation, click the applicable switch to turn it on.
  4. If you configured several aggregations, select Default next to an aggregation to set it as the default aggregation.
  5. Click Save.

Visualization options

The following table lists the available visualization options.

VisualizationDescription
Area ChartAn area chart displays graphically quantitative data. It is based on the line chart.
Bar ChartA bar chart or bar graph is a chart or graph that displays data in rectangular bars with heights or lengths equivalent to the values that they represent.
Col HeatmapA column heat map shows the magnitude of data in a column as color in two dimensions.
Column ChartA column chart displays categories along the horizontal axis and values along the vertical.
HeatmapA heat map shows the magnitude of data as color in two dimensions.
Line ChartA line chart is a type of chart that displays information as a series of data points connected by straight line segments.
Row HeatmapA row heat map shows the magnitude of data in a row as color in two dimensions.
Stacked Bar ChartA stacked bar chart is a graph used to break down and compare parts of a whole. Each bar in the chart represents a whole, and segments in the bar represent different categories of that whole.
Stacked Column ChartA stacked column chart is used to compare the contribution of each value to a total across categories. The column in a stacked column chart is divided into categories, with each column representing a total.
TableA table is a collection of related data held in a table format.
Table BarchartA table bar chart is a chart or graph that displays the collection of related data in rectangular bars.
TreeMap ChartA tree map is an arrangement of rectangles that shows the hierarchical structure of data.

Aggregations

After selecting a visualization, you can enable one or multiple aggregations by using the toggle switches. You can also select an aggregation as default.

The following table of fields provides the basis for aggregation.

AggregationsNumber of fields requiredDescription
AverageOne fieldAggregate refers to the total sum of elements in a data set.
BalanceOne fieldBalance is the sum of data, with cost expressed as a negative value and budget as a positive.
CountNo fieldCount is the total number of data points.
Count as Fraction of ColumnsNo fieldThe fraction of the number of data points in respect of the number of data points for the entire column.
Count as Fraction of RowsNo fieldThe fraction of the number of data points in respect of the number of data points for the entire column.
Count as Fraction of TotalNo fieldThe fraction of the number of data points in respect of the number of all data points.
Count Unique ValuesNo fieldThe total number of unique data points.
FirstOne fieldFirst returns the first value of each column.
Integer SumOne fieldThe sum of the data points converted to integers.
LastOne fieldThe last value of all data points.
List Unique ValuesOne fieldLists all unique data points.
80% Lower BoundOne field80% lower bound value means a parameter value from a distribution of such values within the lowest 80% of that distribution. You must use 80% lower bound with another aggregation; otherwise, it returns an error.
MaximumOne fieldThe maximum value of all data points.
MedianOne fieldThe middle value of all data points.
MinimumOne fieldThe minimum value of all data points.
Sample Standard DeviationOne fieldA sample standard deviation indicates the spread of data points, calculated from the typical distance between each data point and the mean.
Sample VarianceOne fieldA sample variance indicates the variation of all data points.
SumOne fieldThe sum of the data points.
Sum as Fraction of ColumnsOne fieldThe sum of the data points in respect of the number of data points for the entire column.
Sum as Fraction of RowsOne fieldThe sum of the data points in respect of the number of data points for the entire row.
Sum as Fraction of TotalOne fieldThe sum of the data points in respect of the total number of data points.
Sum over SumTwo fieldsThe sum of one set of data points divided by the sum of another set of data points.
80% Upper BoundOne field80% upper bound value means a parameter value from a distribution of such values, which is within the highest 80% of that distribution. You must use 80% upper bound with another aggregation; otherwise, it returns an error.
