The following video (3:44) illustrates the process of creating a summary table in a custom view by using the Summary table template.
Open the view page with the Summary table template:
Datamart filters: Select from the predefined datamart filters that are based on the datamart columns. This helps to further refine the scope of your analysis and makes it easier to work on a subset of data.
Three filters, Filter 1, Filter 2 and Filter 3 are available. What you select in the first filter determines what will be available for selection in the consecutive filters. For example, if you select ClusterABC from Filter 1, Filter 2 lists the hosts that are contained in ClusterABC that you can choose from. Similarly, if you select HostABC from Filter 2, then Filter 3 lists the parameters of HostABC to choose from.
Filters are stored when you navigate back to the previous page, and you can also bookmark them in your browser.
Create quick filter for Filter 1: Select the check box to display Filter 1 as a quick filter on the custom view page. All distinct values of Filter 1 are available as clickable buttons. The following figure shows an example of how the quick filter appears on the custom view page:
The quick filter is available only for the first filter - Filter1.
From the Columns list, select the columns of the datamart to display. The columns list is filtered by the datamart you select.
By default, four columns are displayed. You can also click +Addcolumn to add more columns, or delete a column by clicking X at the top-right of that column.
After you select a column, click the Edit parameters link to configure it further.
In the Edit <columnName> parameters screen that opens, select the Renderer and configure it.
The renderer is automatically selected based on the datamart column you select in the previous step. For example, if you select datacenter (dc_name) as one of the columns, the corresponding default renderer for that column is Text.
Depending on the renderer selected, the parameters to configure differ. For more information on how to use the available renderers, see Using renderers for summary tables in custom views.
The column value is displayed in the form of the select renderer, with the values you specify.
After you complete editing parameters for one column, click Done to return to the previous edit screen.
You can continue to edit parameters for other columns.
Click Apply. The changes are updated dynamically in the view and you continue to be in the edit mode.
Clicking Apply displays a live preview of your configuration, without saving the changes. This live update helps you to quickly review your changes, and if required, quickly make further changes as you continue to be in the edit mod
