Viewing the Combination History for KPI Analysis Fields

A powerful feature in KPI Analytics is the ability to view the history of particular field combinations in a discovery analysis.

About Combination History Analyses

For any row in a KPI Analysis results table, you can look at the history of field combinations. Here are some points to be aware of when running a combination history analysis:

  • When you select combination history, the results open in a new tab.
  • The row you select from the results table determines the KPI filters that display.
  • Discovery analysis settings affect combination history results as follows:
    • Date range selected in the original analysis is applied to the combination history.
    • The attributes of the selected row are included in the drill-down results.
    • Rolling date type (daily, monthly) does not affect the results grouping.
    • Group by date settings from the analysis configuration are retained.
    • For discovery analyses, the group by field setting is replaced by group by month.
    • The filters and other selections in a combination history are editable.
