Bug: serial chart false error

Getting an error on a serial chart when I set the Maximum Categories, but the way it behaves makes me think it's being thrown mistakenly. Exhibit B is that the chart works just fine, it just has the error on it.

 

The error text : errors.exceeded-transfer-limit

 

Attached some images to show what's happening.

  • When I don't set a max, there's no error
  • When I set the max to 10 (the number of categories I want to show), the error shows up
  • When I set the max to 39 (the number of unique values in my field), there's no error
  • When I set the mat to 38 (one less than the number of unique values), the error shows up

 

In summary, the Maximum Categories setting throws and error if you set a max lower than the number of unique values in your chart field. So in effect, you can't functionally use the max value without seeing the error.

 

I tested the same data in Ops Dashboard and am able to set the max to any value and not see the error message. Beta bug?
