Aliases

Introduction

Alias is a reference to a single entity or group of entities that are used in the widgets. Alias may be static or dynamic.
To create a dashboard, you first need to create aliases to define the data from which the entities will be used. Aliases can be as easy as referring to a single device or as complicated as creating a complex search query for specific assets from a list.

In this tutorial, aliases will be used on a system according to the scheme shown below and all devices have “temperature” generated values coming to them:

Alias types

Single entity

This alias allows choosing a single entity. It can be a device, asset, entity view, tenant, customer, dashboard, data converter, scheduler event, blob entity, or current customer.
In the example, an alias was created that filters one device, which in this case is Thermometer 1.

Let’s learn how to add a Single entity alias:

  1. Enter dashboard editing mode.
  2. In the upper right corner of the window, click the “Entity alias” icon.
  3. In the opened Entity aliases window, click the “Add alias” button on the left side of the dialog box.
  4. In the opened dialog Add alias, enter a name for the alias, select a Single entity filter type. From the Type drop-down menu, Select the Device and enter the name of the needed device (start typing it and it will be found automatically).
  5. After configuring the alias, click the “Add” button in the lower right corner.
  6. We can now see that a new alias has been added. Click “Save” in the lower right corner of the dialog box.


Let’s use an added alias in a widget:

  1. Click the “Add new widget” icon in the center of the screen.
  2. In the opened widget bundles selection, click “Cards system”. There select the Entities table widget.
  3. Input data source: Entity type, select alias name from the list, and add telemetry.
  4. Click the “Add” button in the lower right corner of the dialog box.
  5. Widget with alias that filters one device has been added.
  6. Don’t forget to save all the changes by clicking on the big orange checkmark in the lower right corner of the screen.

Entity list

This alias allows choosing several entities manually without entering a query, which can be devices, assets, entity views, tenants, customers, dashboards, data converters, scheduler events, blob entities, or customers. In this example, an alias was created that filters a list of multiple devices.

Let’s learn how to add an Entity list alias:

  1. Enter dashboard editing mode.
  2. In the upper right corner of the window, click the “Entity alias” icon.
  3. In the opened Entity aliases window, click the “Add alias” button on the left side of the dialog box.
  4. In the opened dialog Add alias, enter a name for the alias, select an Entity list filter type. From the Type drop-down menu, Select the Device and input names of the individual devices (start typing it and it will be found automatically).
  5. After configuring the alias, click the “Add” button in the lower right corner.
  6. We can now see that a new alias has been added. Click “Save” in the lower right corner of the dialog box.


Now let’s use the added alias in a widget:

  1. Click the “Add new widget” icon in the center of the screen.
  2. In the opened widget bundles selection, click “Cards system”. There select the Entities table widget.
  3. Input data source: Entity type, select the name of the created alias from the list, and add telemetry.
  4. Click the “Add” button in the lower right corner of the dialog box.
  5. Widget with alias that filters a list of several devices, which in this case are Device D and Device E, has been added.
  6. Don’t forget to save all the changes by clicking on the big orange checkmark in the lower right corner of the screen.

Entity name

This alias allows choosing one or more entity names that begin with an entered query, which can be devices, assets, entity views, tenants, customers, dashboards, data converters, scheduler events, blob entities, or customers.
In this example, an alias was created to filter devices that start with “Compressor”.

Let’s learn how to add an Entity name alias:

  1. Enter dashboard editing mode.
  2. In the upper right corner of the window, click the “Entity alias” icon.
  3. In the opened Entity aliases window, click the “Add alias” button on the left side of the dialog box.
  4. In the opened dialog Add alias, enter a name for the alias, select the filter type Entity name. From the Type drop-down menu, Select the Device and enter a name, or just the beginning of the name, by which devices will be filtered.
  5. After configuring the alias, click the “Add” button in the lower right corner.

Entity from dashboard state

This alias allows choosing entity(-ies) from dashboard state which can be device, asset, entity view, tenant, customer, dashboard, data converter, scheduler event, blob entity or current customer. It is used for filtering data for other dashboard states.
For example, if Time series widget is created on a root dashboard state with several entities displayed on it, and you’d like to create a dashboard state which will display a widget with the entity you clicked on, you need to use this alias.

The following example uses an alias after creating an alias for group entities.

Let’s learn how to add an Entity from dashboard state alias:

  1. Enter dashboard editing mode.

Entities by group name

This alias allows choosing entities by entering the exact full name of an entity group. This entity can be device group(s), asset group(s), entity view group(s), customer group(s), dashboard group(s), or user group(s). The difference between Entities by group name and Group entities is that the first one resolved the group by the specified name while the second one uses hard-coded group ID. More important, during the lookup of entities, this alias will use information about the current user. So, if you share the dashboard with multiple customers, and would like each customer to see devices that belong to him, you should use this alias instead of “Group entities”.

Let’s learn how to add an Entities by group name alias:

  1. Enter dashboard editing mode.
