Web Components for Insights Hub and Industrial IoT
Aggregate Chart


Switch to the TimeSeries-Chart which contains same and more functionality.

This component is only available with Version 1.0 - 1.18 and will be removed in later versions.

The Aggregate Chart displays a line graph of the aggregated time series data for the variables of a selected aspect during a specific date/time range. Based on the component's configuration (e.g. zoomDisabled, wheelZoom) the user can change the selected range interactively by dragging or zooming in and out.
For each aggregate the chart displays the first value, last value, minimum, and maximum sorted by timestamp and connects them by one line per variable.

The Aggregate Chart supports:

  • Datatypes long, double, int
  • Simultaneous display of variables from different assets and different aspects


Aggregate Chart





Name Type Corresponding attribute Default Description Allowed Values
context string context Configures the context of the component. See also here.
dateRange IDateRange Specifies the current date range using from and to, refer to IDateRange model.
dragMode ChartDragMode drag-mode Move Specifies the behavior when dragging. Via Select zooming into specified area is triggered.
With Move the chart can be moved while dragging.
- Move
- Select
errorNotification boolean error-notification Enables error control if an error is thrown. This can be used for debug purposes.

For productive use, the error event should be caught and handled in the application. See also here.
legendDisabled boolean legend-disabled false Disables legend for the chart if true.
locale string locale Specifies the locale in which the component is displayed.
The locales en and de are provided by default.
See also here.
localeManager LocaleManager Returns a LocaleManager object.

This can be used to add locales or to get the locale settings. See also here.
model IDataModel Returns an object for data model handling, refer to IDataModel model.
sharedAssets boolean shared-assets false Specifies whether shared assets from other tenants are supported.
variablePaths AggregatePath Specifies an array of objects which defines the variables to be displayed in the chart. Refer to the snippets below.
view IViewModel Returns an object for view handling, refer to IViewModel model.
wheelZoom boolean wheel-zoom false Enables zoom control by mouse wheel if true. Otherwise, the control key must be pressed for zooming.
Requires that zoom-disabled is false.
zoomDisabled boolean zoom-disabled false Disables zooming for the chart if true.


Name Type Description
dateRangeChanged EventEmitter<IDateRange> Triggered when the date range changes, e.g. when the user zooms or moves inside the chart.
connected EventEmitter<any> Triggered after the component is created, initialized and appended to the DOM tree.
error EventEmitter<MdspUiError> Triggered when an error occurs in the component or while accessing APIs. See also here.


interface TimeZoneDateRange {
    from: Date;
    to: Date;
    isAllDay: boolean;
    timeZone: TimeZone;
interface IDataModel {
  // forces reload of data, e.g. re-loading the chart
  refresh(): void;
interface IViewModel {
  refresh(): void;
enum TimeZone {
    Local = 'Local',
    UTC = 'UTC',


  • For performance reasons it is recommended to limit the number of variables displayed in the Aggregate Chart to 10.

Display all Variables of an Aspect

You can either pass an object to specify the aspect or provide the full path.

aggregateChart.variablePaths = [
   // Show all variables of a given aspect
      assetId: '89bba0c1e19c4884bce75d8bcc3773e5',
      aspectName: 'AspectNameX'
aggregateChart.variablePaths = [
   // Convenient Syntax: write the path to the assetId/aspect

Display Specific Variables

You can either pass an object to specify the variables to be displayed or provide the full path.

aggregateChart.variablePaths = [
   // Show specific variables of an aspect
      assetId: 'f9f1ff3ccaa1401a98cf37d0c9144c7e',
      aspectName: 'AspectNameX',
      variables: ['VariableName1', ...,'VariableNameN']
aggregateChart.variablePaths = [
   // Convenient Syntax: write the path to the assetId/aspect/variableName1&variableName2.. etc.

Update the Variables using an Aspect Variable Selector

Use the event triggered by an Aspect Variable Selector to update the variables to be displayed in the Aggregate Chart. A more detailed code sample is given here.

aspectVariableSelectorComp.addEventListener('selectedAspectsAndVariablesChanged', function (eventParams) {
            timeseriesAggregateComp.variablePaths = eventParams.detail;

Change the Timestamp Format in the Overlay

const chartComp = document.querySelector('mdsp-aggregate-chart');
const localeSettings = chartComp.localeManager.getLocaleSettings();
localeSettings.tooltipTimestampFormat = "DD MM YY HH:mm:ss.SSS";
chartComp.localeManager.addLocale("en-custom", localeSettings);
chartComp.locale = "en-custom";

Custom overlay

Change the variable name in the chart using an alias for a variable

const chartComp = document.querySelector('mdsp-aggregate-chart');
chartComp.variablePaths = [{
   assetId: '730540babbb44fe58f24cc71c04fd1fc',
   aspectName: 'aspect_pump',
   variables: [{
      name: 'MotorCurrent',
      alias: 'Motor current which needs a very special alias name'

Setting an alias name

Change the drag mode of the aggregate chart

<mdsp-aggregates-chart drag-mode="Select"></mdsp-aggregates-chart>

Drag mode Select allows the user to drag and select an area in order to zoom into the chart. Drag mode Move will move the chart while dragging.

Drag mode Select in the chart
