Apps - Widget - Breadcrumbs icon.png This type of widget belongs to the EasyVista category in the widget library. It is used to facilitate navigation within the app thanks to a data source containing Product name - ev itsm.png aggregated data.

  • The different levels of analysis in the Product name - ev itsm.png view associated with the data source are displayed in a tree structure.
  • You can drill down to view the complete breakdown of aggregated data and return to the starting point of the view.

  • Only an EasyVista data source can be used.
  • The Breadcrumb widget cannot be used alone. It must be used together with a widget that will present aggregated data from the same data source, e.g. Dashboard or Data Viewer widget. The tree structure of the levels of analysis is automatically synchronized each time you change the level of analysis in one of the widgets. Open url.png See the drill-down functionality.

1. Create an EasyVista data source to extract aggregated data on equipment by location.

  • Run the parent query linked to the Product name - ev itsm.png menu option Transition > Assets > Equipment.
  • Aggregate data using the Equipment by location view.

2. Add a Breadcrumb widget pointing to the data source.

3. Add other widgets and configure their properties to point to the same data source:

  • A Data Viewer widget displaying the list of locations. This list is used to zoom in on each location. You can enable the drill-down functionality by checking the Enable Drilldown box.
  • A Data Viewer widget displaying the list of equipment by location. This list is used to zoom in on detailed data in the selected location. You can disable the drill-down functionality by unchecking the Enable Drilldown box.
  • A Bar Chart widget displaying the breakdown of equipment in a bar chart.
  • A Pie/Donut Chart widget displaying the breakdown of equipment in a pie chart.

4. Switch to execute mode EVApps - GUI - Execute icon.png to test that navigation within the different levels of analysis in the view works correctly.
