HID_Data_Resolution
Some view types, such as table views and trend views, provide the option to set the resolution for the reported data.
For table views, the resolution specifies the granularity of the reporting data: as polled, hourly rollup, or daily rollup.
For trend views, the resolution specifies the amount of time that each data point represents. The granularity ranges from minutes to daily resolution depending on the time range.

The time range for a view determines the default data resolution:
  • As Polled Data
    Less than, or equal to, 24 hours
  • Hourly Resolution
    Greater than 24 hours to less than 14 days
  • Daily Resolution
    14 days to less than one year
  • Weekly Resolution
    One year or longer
When you edit a view, the current selected time range determines the possible resolution options. The following values show the maximum time range for each data resolution:
  • As Polled Data
    Less than, or equal to, 24 hours
  • Hourly Resolution
    Less than 30 days, and more than 24 hours
  • Daily Resolution
    More than, or equal to, 30 days
Users with the Run Dashboards At Higher Resolution role right use the following maximum time ranges:
  • As Polled Data
    Less than, or equal to, 31 days
  • Hourly Resolution
    More than 31 days
  • Daily Resolution
    More than three months
When you set a custom resolution, the view shows that resolution only if the following conditions are true:
  • The user can view report data at that resolution for that time range.
  • The data resolution is within the data retention policy of the data source.
If the data is unavailable or the time range is too great, the system overrides the specified resolution automatically. The system returns the closest permissible resolution for the time range. For trend views, the
chart
subtitles indicates the data resolution. For tables views, the

subtitle indicates the data resolution.
