What version are you using? You should be able to change the cell title when you select the Visualization type. There is also a Customize menu where you can set the title (or delete it if you want).

Can you leave it blank if you toggle the auto to off?


#5

Yes, that’s what the screenshot is showing. Auto is toggled off and its blank, the text in the field is put there by chronograf if the field is blank.


#6

My auto is set to off when it is on the right-hand side. It looks like yours is still on in that screenshot.

The video isn’t showing :frowning:

I think I was confused about which side was off/on. When I leave the text field blank, click outside of the text field to remove the cursor, and then toggle auto to the right, I can leave it blank.

When my field is blank chronograf autofills it with the default title.

Understood. Let me check and see if there’s a fix or upgrade for this

Thanks! It does only happen to some cells, others work just fine.

If I use this query for example it behaves as described:

SELECT "value" FROM "telegraf"."autogen"."cpu_temperature" WHERE time > :dashboardTime:

However if I use this query, i can delete the title:

SELECT MOVING_AVERAGE("value", 5) FROM "telegraf"."autogen"."cpu_temperature" WHERE time > :dashboardTime:

I chatted with the Chronograf engineers, and it looks like the intended behavior is that you should not be able to leave the y-axis title blank. When left blank, it should revert to the default. One suggestion is to put a single character in as the title ("-" or “.”, for example) to take up the least amount of space.

I know that sometimes the behavior gets a little odd when the page is refreshed due to issues with caching in the browser.

Thanks for the feedback, appreciated.
Why it it possible in other cells?
For example here:

Is there any chance to change this default behaviour, I really like to format my dashboards how I see fit.

I can report the bug and have the team look into it. Thank you for your feedback!
