Creating a chart from JSON data
To create a report from arbitrary JSON data, follow the steps below:
- Open the Chart wizard by clicking the chart button of an existing column.
- In the appearing dialog, you may choose which type of data to build the chart from. Choose JSON.
- Set the JSON data you want to use for the chart. You can use sample JSON data by clicking the paste button on the right-hand side.
Set which properties to use for the y-axis and x-axis.
It's typical to use a property that has a numerical value for the y-axis. If you are using the built-in sample JSON data, you can use either the
uploadproperty for the y-axis.
The x-axis is normally used to display the labels of the items in the y-axis. If you are using our sample JSON data, you can use the
nameproperty for the x-axis.
Pick the type of chart you want to use, and specify a name for your chart.
- Click Generate Report to finalize your work.
