Improved/configurable access to "controls" in Cockpit Data Points Graph widget

Currently, when a Data Points Graph is displayed in a Cockpit dashboard, the following controls are not accessible in the dashboard directly - only in the "Edit" dialog...

  • "Realtime" toggle icon (switching in/out of realtime mode)

  • Aggregation settings: {None, Minutely, Hourly, Daily, etc...}

  • Date/time selectors (except when not in Realtime mode)

This limits the flexibility of the chart for some users, and makes it clumsy to work with the chart interactively in some cases.

We would like to see an option to explicitly show/hide these controls in the widget, so that when you configure the widget, you can choose to have them visible/accessible or not.

    Hi Neil,

    We would like to share that the new data point graph is now available for Cumulocity 10.16 onwards . You can install the Data points graph plugin from this package into a custom application (cloned cockpit )

    Cumulocity > Administration > Ecosystem > Applications > Packages > Cumulocity community plugins > Install Data points graph (screenshot attached)

    Key improvements are listed below:

    • Real-time can be switched on/off on the graph (previously you had to edit the widget and change)

    • Aggregation type can be changed on the graph (previously you had to edit the widget and change)

    • Date selector on the graph

    • Parameters being plotted can be turned off in a click

    • Y-axis is now colored as selected parameter and more readable

    • Graph view can be saved as an image

    • & many more minor usability improvements

    If you have any suggestions or encounter any problems, please do not hesitate to create GitHub issues. Contributions are also highly appreciated.

    In case you are not able to view the package in your tenant (10.16 or above), you can also download it manually from here: and install it in Cumulocity > Administration > Ecosystem > Applications > Packages > + Add package on top right

    Hi Neil, thanks for the feedback around Data Point Graph.

    We are currently working on a new & improved Data Point Graph that addresses the above three pain points and as well as other improvements. We plan to release a beta version of the new widget in the form of a plugin around May-June. Once it's available, I'll provide you with installation instructions and later seek your feedback on its performance.
