Charts

MongoDB Charts is the best way to create visualizations of MongoDB data. Connect to any MongoDB instance as a data source, create charts and graphs, embed them into your applications or build live dashboards for sharing and collaboration.

  1. Change Charts Query Order and Timeout

    I use charts as an iFrame embedded to my website, and our clients ( another Team inside my company) should always analyse different user IDs data. Having that in my mind, I created general purpose graph charts and when used, the query inside the iFrame would query the user IDs wanted.
    The problem is that, your mongoChart would first do all query inside the Charts ( Query and Filters) and then filter the document (on iframe code) that should have been filtered before. The result is that, even for a small collection ( 1 million documents 200mb size)…

  2. Allow $merge aggregation for Charts data sources

    We would like to have separate databases for each client. They will have access to dashboards we create with their respective data but we would like to have some dashboards for internal use that combine the data from multiple clients. Merging collections in different db's would accomplish this.

  3. Do not load filters values from database

    On large collections, loading filters potential values is very resources consuming. It would be great to not load all the data when displaying the filters.
    A button to toggle this behaviour would be great.

  4. Do not load graph before validation when editing

    Do not load graph before validation when editing.
    On large collections, loading graph is very resources consuming. It would be great to not load all the data at every configuration change.

  6. The ability to add a spider/radar chart

    For our specific chart requirements (comparing different entities), it is imperative that we are able to plot the multivariate data in a spider chart.

    I have read on the developer community that "...we are also planning a spider/radar chart in upcoming months." (dated 1 May 20) but since then I have been able to find any other reference wrt the realization for this feature.

  7. Dashboard refresh based on data

    It would be nice if m dashboard would refresh based on data, if a certain condition from data is matched.
    I have a datasource for a dashboard that received ~ 10 records first 1 minute on every top of an hour. I need to refresh this ASAP. On the rest of the hour, some data are coming but not every time the refresh needs to be done.
    I can filter out data in aggregation pipeline, but to get refresh ASAP I need to set refresh interval for 1 min (ideally even few secs) for whole hour. Anyway, I am receiving…

  8. filter

    The filters applied at the dashboard level should also be applied to the "Get Charts Data" export feature. The export currently contains all data from the underlying dataset.
    This counters the user's expectation, which may be to export only what is filtered/visible.

  9. Make Mongo Charts works with self hosted database

    I want to keep hand on my data and prefer to run mongodb database on my servers.

    Mongo charts is not so easy to maintain compared to mongoDB so i am interested in the cloud solution, but connected on my self hosted databases.

  11. Manage dashboard and data sourse access by team rather than individual.

    If it were possible to allocate teams to dashboards and data sources then management of a group of users who should only have access to a subset of charts would be much easier.
    At the moment when a new user joins a team they must be added individually to each dashboard and datasource.

  12. Get the fields corresponding to a Max/Min document

    When I view the max/min aggregate in the charts, I would like to see the corresponding document's field. For example, I want to visualise a table like below,
    id max(field1) field2ofmaximumfield1

  13. Array of mixed types not working correctly

    When we have an array of type [String, number], the second item is considered as string and hence, not able to do aggregation like sum.

    For example, consider
    ```

    $project: {
      transposed: {
        $zip: {
          inputs: [["aaa","bbb"], [1, 2]]
        }
      }
    }
    

    I am not able to create a data table with transformed.0 in col1 and max(transformed.1) in col2

  14. server to database drill down for Ops Manager metrics

    When looking at server charts in Ops Manager METRICS, it would be good to have the ability to drill down to the database level. For example, I can easily see #connections to a host via Ops Manager UI. But, I want to know which databases in the cluster are being connected to, and currently, I have to mine the mongod logs for that.
    This is discussed https://support.mongodb.com/case/00687156

  15. Make Charts Loading Screen Contextually Relevant

    Add the Chart Title to its Loading dialog.

    Would solve some UX problems for embedded charts - letting the user know what is coming to fill the space. There are workarounds for this currently (i.e. not using the charts title and having it on the render end instead... or having a conditional display that waits for the chart to load) but it would seem a more integrated experience all around to add context relevance to the Loading dialog, if possible.

    Thanks!

  16. Display row numbers for text charts

    It would nice if there was an option to toggle row numbers for text charts. This would be helpful, for example, when the rank of entries is important.

  17. lowlevel data api

    Mongodb-charts is great but still lacking a lot of features (which is not super surprising given it's age). To work around mobile issues, missing zoom, server side rendering and similar it would be great if the sdk exposed a low level data endpoint so that we can create our own visualizations on top of the aggregated & cached data from mongodb charts.

    I imagine sth like:

    const sdk = new ChartsEmbedSDK({
    baseUrl,
    });
    const data = await sdk.getData({chartId})

    unrelated side note: it would be great if the embed sdk was open source so that we can just contribute little enhancements…

  18. render all labels in a series

    The bigger the chart/differences in the chart get the harder it get's to point the cursor to display a label. Also if you have multiple y-axis the label is only shown for the one your touching - it would be nice if in discrete charts the label would show the values of all axis.

    tl;dr;
    - label should show for closest data point for easier touching
    - label should contain all values

    that's e.g. how it works with recharts: http://recharts.org/en-US/examples/SimpleLineChart

  19. Add option for a dynamic Chart Title

    It would be useful if I could set the chart title to equal the result of an aggregation on the chart's documents.

  20. updating the min value dynamically to expand the chart

    Imagine this scenario: You have a price x data chart with a range between 110.000 and 120.000 for prices.
    But the chart always starts at 0. You ever have to update the minimum range manually to near 110.000 to show data in the graph appropriately. Counterproductive, not?
    So, I suggest creating a feature to updating the min value dynamically to expand the chart and ever occupy the entire space of the cartesian plane, especially in continuous charts.
