Deprecated Widgets

These widgets are still part of codeBeamer, but considered outdated and are not available on Widget Browser in recent releases. Existing dashboards, which were created in earlier version of codeBeamer, might still contain these widgets. Deprecated widgets on these dashboard still work, but it is not possible to add further instances of these widgets to the dashboard.

Widget name Deprecated since Reason
Area Chart Widget 8.1 Chart widget replaced this widget.
Bar Chart Widget 8.1 Chart widget replaced this widget.
Gauge Chart Widget 8.1 Chart widget replaced this widget.
Speedometer Chart Widget 8.1 Chart widget replaced this widget.

Aligning pinned Widgets

Dashboard in codeBeamer supports exactly 1 full-length Widget on top of the Dashboard. Depending on the size of the Widget, the following alignment options can be selected:

Stretch

This is the default value. It should be selected for all Widgets, which benefit from taking up all available space. (For example: Table and Release Gantt Chart Widgets.)

Left

Shows the Widget on the left edge of the screen. All of the following options only make sense, if the Widget has a fixed width.

Center

Aligns the widget to the center of the screen.

Right

Shows the Widget on the right edge of the screen.

Report Visualization

Report Visualization Widgets are special types of widgets. They take a Report and show the result on a nice chart. These widgets always show the actual result of the reports. The supported chart types:

  • Pie
  • Area
  • Bar (simple, multi and stacked)
  • Table
  • Gauge
  • Speedometer

The Report Visualization Widgets have a common editor format:

https://codebeamer.com/cb/displayDocument/Screenshot+2016-11-04+-+16.35.07.png?doc_id=1865915&version=1&history=false&notification=false

Some fields are not shown for some chart types. The most important fields on the form:

  • Data source: the input report. The chart will visualize the result of this report. Note that some chart type have special requirements regarding the data source. For example for a Multi Bar Chart you can use only Reports that are grouped by at least two fields. The reports that can not be used for the selected chart type are disabled in the list. A small hint under the field always tells you the exact reason.
  • Grouping Field: the Report Visualization Widgets accept only grouped Reports as data source. In this field you can select which grouping field to use on the visualization
  • Aggregation Function: if the report is aggregated by multiple functions (sum, avg etc.) you can select in this field which aggregated value to show on the visualization.
  • Display unit: when the values to visualize are very large you can round them to the hundreds, thousands, millions or billions to make the chart easier to overview.
  • Ordering: defines in which order the values are shown on the chart. You can change the ordering on both axis. If you order by group name then the labels on the horizontal axis will be in their natural order. You can also order the values in which case the labels will be ordered by their corresponding value on the vertical axis.
  • Horizontal/Vertical Axis label: the labels shown under the horizontal and beside the vertical axis.
  • No Group Text: when you group your Report by a field it is possible that some matching items have no value in that field. By default the label for these values on the charts is No Group. You can change this default label by providing something else in this field.
  • Chart Colors: a comma separated list of colors (either RGB codes like #fff or color names). These colors will override the default colors in the chart. This means that the first chart segment will be painted with the first color provided, the second segment will be painted with the second color etc. If you have more chart segments than color provided than the same color will be used on the chart multiple times.
  • Show Values: when checked the actual values will be shown above the chart segments.
  • Value Label: Specifies what information does the values on charts reflects. Works together with the previous option.

    Possible values:



  • Show Legend: when checked the widget will add a legend (an explanation of the chart colors) under the chart

Chart Widget

Chart Widget unifies the previously standalone report visualization widgets. This makes it possible to change the chart type after creating the widget. The configuration options for each widget type stayed the same.

Area Chart Widget (Deprecated)

With this widget you can visualize time series. This means that the editor accepts only Reports grouped by a date field. Note that the chart connects the points with straight lines (even when a date is missing between to consecutive points)

Configuration screen Preview screen

Bar Chart Widget (Deprecated)

This widget has three different modes:

  • Simple: a traditional bar chart. One bar for each group.
  • Stacked: (as on the figure below). This mode accepts only reports that are grouped by exactly two fields.
  • Multi: this mode accepts only reports that are grouped by exactly two fields. The for each group it will show multiple bars: one for each subgroup.

SELECT ReleaseID AS 'Release', assignedTo AS 'Assigned to', COUNT(1) AS COUNT WHERE project.id IN ('current project') AND assignedTo IS NOT NULL GROUP BY 'Release', 'Assigned to'

Items group by value of 'Team' and 'Assigned to' field:
