What is the logic behind charts that don't allow you to see/tweak the query?

Hi All -

What is the logic behind charts that don’t allow you to see/tweak the query?

I’m assuming is a result of the ‘legacy’ methods of storing and retrieving data.

I have a number of dashboards I’ve inherited from users who have since left my company. I’d like to consolidate and tweak some of them, yet a handful don’t allow me to ‘crack open’ the query and see how the chart was created.

For these charts, what’s the best method to recreate and customize them?

Thank you.

Hi, @jon46: Charts that are based on metric data (that is, copied from curated views in APM, Browser, etc.) do not have an underlying query.

We have recently added the ability to query APM metric data. You may be able to use this capability to recreate some of those charts. There are some tips for using this feature here:
