I am trying to create a Histogram and a Bar Chart using a Point Layer as the source but all the fields except objectID and Tax Field are missing. I checked and the problem also occurs with the Pie Chart widget. When I use other widgets, the fields are all available. If I use non-Point layers, all the fields are displayed in the Chart widgets. It is only when using a chart widget with a Point Layer that the fields disappear.

Any assistance will be appreciated.

So after reviewing the data, it was found that most of the fields were string type and those will not work in charts that are looking for numeric fields to display data.

Hi Tiffany-

Maybe there is something with your dataset that is causing this?  Are you using a feature layer from with in the org, or a service URL from ArcGIS Server?  Or even if you pull the URL from the org and try that? 

Thanks,
Chris

Hi Chris,

The Point Feature Layer is being accessed from my webmap in Portal. In Portal I loaded the layer from my computer as part of a file geodatabase. All the fields from the point layer are accessible using other widgets in Dashboard; it is only when using a chart widget that my fields are missing. The other layers in the same file geodatabase from Portal display all of their fields in the chart widgets. It is only the point layer when used with a chart widget that has the problem of missing fields.

If the data is shared to a group, can you add my account- colsen_nitro to it and I can take a look?  Or do you have a test account you can send? 

Thanks!

Do you need access to the portal map and dashboard map or just to the data?

based on your assessment, just the data and portal map.  If the widget doesn't allow it, I should be able to see that in any dashboard.

I have tried adding your account to a group but I am not getting any results. I have tried colsen_nitro and your name. Since the group is private, would you need to first be a member of the organization?

I do not know how to send a test account. Do you mean the file?

It would be beneficial if the pie chart would work with non-numeric values so that we could get a percentage pie chart of types of objects on the map. For example if there were a point feature representing hydrants with a text field indicating their cap color we could chart it as 60% green, 30% orange, 10% blue based on the number of points with that attribute.
