Administration: User Parameter Configuration

Parameters Description Configuration Options Default/Example Settings
Range Start/End This parameter determines the start of the range of dates that are preselected. The value represents the number of months from the current month.  A value of zero (0) represents the current month.  A value of -11 would be 12 months ago. horizon_start=-11
Attribute for Grouping Attribute for which process cycle times are being analyzed. Only alternate structure attributes in the framework, marked as analyzable and that have charting colors assigned can be used for slicing in the report. analyze_attribute= wr1_wr
Report View: Determines the default view of the report. Configuration options. A value of 0 (Dashboard) will show the charts but will collapse all the details.  A value of 1 (Chart + Summary) will expand the summaries but keep the details collapsed.  A value of 2 (Chart + Details) will render a fully expanded report.  The “Dashboard” selection (report_view=0) will also hide the detail table. report_view=0
Table Format: Defines how the detail table at the bottom is formatted. The value “sectiongroup” renders a table with grouping, whereas “plain” renders a table that’s good for analysis in Excel. Neither of these apply when the report view is “Dashboard” because the table is hidden. table_format=sectiongroup
