Improvements to Jidoka and new stacked Google charts r8431


Since last week’s release of the new Jidoka, we’re continuing to make some great improvements to the system and we think you’re going to love them.

We’ve added the ability to drag and drop Parameters between tree nodes making it really easy to move Parameters around the system. The tree view is secured based on the security role of editing a Parameter, so only those with access to edit a Parameter can move it.


We’ve updated the real-time Trend feature in Jidoka to show the high/low limits for a Parameter. This will help you easily identify when a Parameter has breached it’s limits.


In the Parameter Editor you can now set the number of decimal places you want to display for each Parameter on the value, low/high limit fields. This is particularly useful if you’re entering a currency value and you don’t want it to show 3 decimal places.


We’ve made a change to the Parameter Editor, so that when you deploy a new version of a Parameter and close the Editor it will automatically refresh your page and tree view to reflect your changes.

Google Charts

This week we’ve got a great update to Google charts in Sabisu. For the Bar, Column and Area Google charts, there is now an option called “is stacked” which enables each of these components to display data in a stacked format.




For all you developers out there, we’ve also expanded the data types which can be converted for Google Charts to include the following:

  • big int, bit, decimal, int, money, float
  • date, datetime2, datetime
  • char, text, nchar, ntext, binary


  • Sabisu data now supports locale settings. This means Sabisu now respects European conventions for representing numbers, i.e., if your preference is to see the number 123,456.789 represented as 123.456,789, this will now be supported on all Widgets. Previously, data had to take the non-European form 123,456.789 otherwise Widgets would fail to process the data and render.
  • We’ve improved the tree view build process so as to handle much larger data sets.
  • We’ve updated the tree prefix icon (+/-) to deal with the situation where a child node is removed from a parent and no other children exist.
  • We’ve updated the Parameter Editor so that when you now create a new Parameter, close the Editor and open it again, it clears the previous changes you made.
  • We’ve addressed an oversight with escaping sensitive characters in the tag search section of the Parameter Editor. You should be able to type freely into this field now to search for tags.
  • The server drop down list in the Parameter Editor will now be highlighted if you attempt to search for a tag without selecting a server to search.
  • We’ve addressed an issue with Internet Explorer that would prompt you to enter a comment if you pressed enter when searching for tags.
  • We’ve removed the Comment dialog from appearing when saving a new parameter for the first time.
