Create a target color scheme

A target color scheme can be used to visualize the position of the indicator score relative to its target.

Before you begin

Role required: the pa_admin, pa_power_user, or admin

About this task

For example, if you want to filter the number of open incidents, the scores for an increase of 25% can be shown in red, an increase of 10% in orange, and no change in yellow. Whereas, for example, a decrease by 25% can be shown in dark green. Two target color schemes are created in Performance Analytics by default: the 3-color traffic light and the 5-color traffic light.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to Performance Analytics > System > Target Color Schemes.
  2. Click New.
  3. Enter a Name and a Description.
  4. Define each of the five ranges and their associated colors. If you do not want to use all the ranges, you can use the same range color for multiple range limits.
  5. Click Submit.

    A Default indicator target color scheme can be set in Performance Analytics > System > Properties. This is used when no color scheme has been selected for an indicator target.
