Bucket groups

Bucket groups are custom groups that can be used when you define a breakdown source that uses Bucket [pa_buckets] as the facts table.

Bucket groups can also be used with a script. When configuring the indicator, you can attach a script that runs through the collected data and places the records into a bucket group. For example, you can arrange open incidents according to age, such as <1 day, 2-5 days, 6-30 days, >30 days old. In this case, the indicator Open Incidents is broken down by Incident Age.
