Auto Refresh Tags in Visualizations

In Fabric Health Analytics, the data is saved as index patterns in the Elastic Search database and is fetched into the various fields in the visualizations. However, when you add tag ids dynamically in GigaVUE-FM and associate the tags to the various resources, the tag ids are not automatically refreshed in the visualizations. To add the new tags in visualizations:

  1. Create new tag key and tag values from the tags page. Refer to the Create User-defined Tag section in the GigaVUE Administration Guide.

  2. Associate the resources to the tag keys and tag values. For example, to add tag key and tag values to the physical nodes, refer to the Add New Physical Node or Cluster to GigaVUE‑FM
  3. Click on Refresh Index Pattern icon for the newly added tags to get reflected in the visualization filters in the system and custom visualizations.

Filter Data Using Tags in Control Visualizations

Customize the Tag Sample - Statistics option available in some of the Statistical Dashboards to filter the data based on the required tags.


  • Ensure to add the required tag keys and tag values to the tags page, and associate the tag values to the resources.
  • Use the Refresh Index Pattern icon for the newly added tags to get reflected in Fabric Health Analytics page.

Consider a scenario in which you want to filter the inventory details in GigaVUE-FM based on a newly created tag key called SITE:

To do this:

    • Select and drag an area of the visualization for a specific time interval. All the visualizations in the dashboard get updated for that time interval. The time interval also gets updated in the Quick Select.
    • Double click on an area in the visualization and select the required filters to apply.
    • Control Visualizations: Use Control Visualizations to filter the data based on tags. For example, in the Inbound Port Statistics visualization, you can filter the data based on the cluster id, port number, port id or port alias. Refer to the following sections:
