The Timeline visualization displays series of data coming from different entity tables on a single timeline component. Events are color-coded to distinguish between different groups.
Each event on a timeline becomes a clickable term filter which enables you to quickly filter the related data based on what is shown on the timeline.
To configure the visualization, add a new Group and select:
Saved search id: Select an entity table or search from the list. The date for this group will be taken from the corresponding index.
Group label: Label for the group.
Event label field: Field value will be used as individual event label.
Event start date: Date from this field will be used to position start of the event.
