RSA IGL Recipes: Telemetry Chart - ROI AFX $

RSA IGL Version: V 7.2.x

Modules: Lifecycle

Product Area: Charts, Single Series (Applied to Home/AFX Telemetry Summary Dashboard)

Associated Dashboard:

Time to apply: ~30 minutes



This chart provides key information about the AFX fulfillment and how many $ (or whatever currency you pick) this has saved the business.  The chart uses data found in: avuser.PV_TELEMETRY_DATA. This means the data is always 1 day behind. This data also uses values that have been pre-defined and is covered by the info found here: RSA IGL Recipes : Dashboard - ROI AFX 

The goal of this chart is to understand the ROI because of AFX in $. 

The chart can be used by admins to help understand the total $ that AFX is saving the business.

Key Notes

  • This only works, if the values have been defined already, as explained here:   
  • This chart/report/dashboard is supplied "as is" - any modification of this item is done at your own risk. 
  • If you have issues applying this chart/report/dashboard, please comment below for help, DO NOT contact the RSA Support team.
  • If you would like more assistance with this chart/report/dashboard or for help in creating other chart/report/dashboards, then RSA Professional Services (RSA PS) is available to help.
    • Please contact your RSA Account Manager or local RSA Sales Rep or reply below for further assistance.



This chart displays the total $ that have been saved, due to AFX.

We look at the number of AFX requests completed and then calculate this as follows:

"Total AFX Requests Completed" x "dashboard_afx_time" eg.

190 x 8 = $1,520


As this chart uses the telemetry data found within v7.2x, some of the historical data trends wont be available, if you have upgraded from an older RSA IGL version. 


Optional Changes to Dynamic Chart Values

This is how you can configure the chart, so it is useful for how you wish to view the data 

  • GROUPING: This allows you to group the data and display it based on the following date ranges. For example, you might want to show the data grouped per week, per quarter or per day. This will be up to you and your business needs. 
     For this chart, the recommendation is to use 'Monthly'
    You MUST ensure you use a single quote ', either side of the value, for this to work properly in the RSA IGL Chart UI.
    However, when testing this in SQL Developer, the single quote ' is NOT required.
    Please copy and paste these values exactly as shown below to change the chart:
    • 'Daily'
    • 'Weekly'
    • 'Monthly'
    • 'Quarterly'
    • 'Yearly'


  • TotalDataPoints: This is how many results you want to display. It is a number and doesn't need any quotes. If you set this value to be 7, it would show 7 results. For example if you set "Grouping" to be 'Monthly' then you might want to set "TotalDataPoints" = 6, showing you the results for the past 6 months. 
     For this chart, the recommendation is to use 6, however it will depending on the screen size you have and how this looks.

We strongly recommend you do not specify too many values for "TotalDataPoints" otherwise it will not display well


Chart SQL

First test this in your query tool (SQLDeveloper, Toad etc..)


    NVL(tFulfilmentRequestsCompleted.value * t1.dashboard_afx_time, 0) AS "Saving per Week ($)"   
            TO_CHAR(Tdates.dates, DECODE(trim( :GROUPING ) , 'Daily', 'YYYY-Mon-DD', 'Weekly', 'YYYY - "Week "WW', 'Monthly', 'YYYY - Month', 'Quarterly', 'YYYY - "Q"Q', 'Yearly', 'YYYY')) StartTime,
            Use count(t1.value) to count the number of rows based on your filters
            Use max(t1.value) to get the maximum value on the specific date
            Use sum(t1.value) to get the collective total of values on the specific date
            nvl(sum(td.value), 0) VALUE
                /* if using avuser.PV_TELEMETRY_DATA then change sysdate to be sysdate-1. This is beacuse telemetry is calculated 1 day later */
                    WHEN :GROUPING = 'Daily' THEN trunc(sysdate-1, 'DD') - (LEVEL-1)
                    WHEN :GROUPING = 'Weekly' THEN trunc(sysdate-1, 'D') - (7 * (LEVEL-1))
                    WHEN :GROUPING = 'Monthly' THEN ADD_MONTHS(trunc(sysdate-1, 'MM'),-1 *(LEVEL-1))
                    WHEN :GROUPING = 'Quarterly' THEN ADD_MONTHS(trunc(sysdate-1, 'Q'),-3 *(LEVEL-1))
                    WHEN :GROUPING = 'Yearly' THEN ADD_MONTHS(trunc(sysdate-1, 'Y'),-12 *(LEVEL-1))
                END dates
            CONNECT BY
                LEVEL <= :TotalDataPoints 
            ) Tdates
           LEFT JOIN avuser.PV_TELEMETRY_DATA td 
                on td.CATEGORY = 'afx'
                 AND td.NAME =('')
                Use = to get values at the exact dates. 
                Use <= to get values on or before the exact date 
                AND trunc(td."DAY", DECODE(:GROUPING ,'Daily','DD','Weekly','D','Monthly','MM','Quarterly','Q','Yearly','Y')) = Tdates.dates
        GROUP BY Tdates.dates
        ORDER BY Tdates.dates ASC
    ) tFulfilmentRequestsCompleted
			max(value) as dashboard_afx_time
		from avuser.t_system_settings
		where parameter = 'custom.dashboard_afx_cost'
	) t1


Example of the results:




WHen you implement this chart, you may see an error as follows, however in this case, you can just "ok" the message and ignore it.


Chart Implementation

  1. Log into RSA IGL as a user who can create charts. In my example, im using AveksaAdmin
  2. Go to "Reports" / "Charts"
  3. Select "+ Create Chart" button
  4. Under the "General Tab" add the following details:
    • Name: Telemetry Chart - AFX ROI Metrics - $
    • Description: From RSA IGL Link Community. This chart provides information on the total $ saved from AFX fulfillment. This chart uses data from avuser.PV_TELEMETRY_DATA which is collected nightly, so the data is always 1 day behind.
    • Type = Single Series Chart

  5. Under the "Query" Tab, copy the SQL from above
  6. Update the 2 dynamic values as noted above, recommendation:
    Grouping: 'Monthly'
    TotalDataPoints: 6
  7. Press the "Preview" button, you should see some results, as per the example image below.
    If you get an error at this stage, please test your SQL in a Query tool, like "SQL Developer" or "SQL Squirrel" to ensure it works first. 
    If it still doesn't work, please share your SQL and a screen shot of the issue below. DO NOT contact RSA Support 

  8. Under the "Columns" Tab, please use the configuration shown in the image below.

  9. Under the "Display Attributes" tab, you should select "Column 2D". Please also apply these settings, however you can update the wording with what is best for you.
    • Under Number Formatting
      • Number suffix:  $
        Note: change this to whatever currency you would like to use, eg. £
      • Thousand Seperator: ,
    • Under "Title and Axis Names"
      • Caption: AFX ROI Metrics - $
      • Sub Caption: Results: Total AFX Requests Completed x Average $ cost per request
      • X Axis Name: Date
      • Y Axis Name: Total Hours Saved
    • Under "Functional attributes"
      • Select "Animation" = ticked
      • Select "Show Labels"  = ticked
      • Select "Show Values" = ticked

There are MANY other "display attributes" you can play with on this screen, so please update and make changes as you see fit.
