Setting the Displayed Color Label Length for a Bubble Chart

If the legend of a bubble chart contains many color labels, the labels may be truncated. You can extend the displayed color label length by doing the following:

  1. Edit the <PPM_Home>/server/<PPM_Server_Name>/deploy/dashboard.war/static/app/portlet/css/BubbleChart.css file:

    1. Find the maxLegendItemLength key and increase its value. The value is in pixels. About 1,000 pixels is equal to the 200 character color label length limit.

    2. Save the file.

  2. Repeat Step 1 for all nodes in a cluster.

  3. Restart the PPM Server.
