GraphQL, name, id

I am making progress in creating a customized multi-line chart with Vega-lite (not Vega). I noticed that on the GraphQL page, that “name” and “id” are always available. If wanted to do a groupby by name, how would that be accomplished? Would I use Would I have to use quotation marks, like ""? Any information would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hey @erlebacher, you can groupby within the UI itself by going to the following page:

If you want to edit the Vegalite script directly, you can use something similar to the following:

"transform": [
      "calculate": "if('${field:groupKeys}' === ''  || datum['${field:groupKeys}'] === '', false, true)",
      "as": "grouped"
      "calculate": "if('${field:groupKeys}' === ''  || datum['${field:groupKeys}'] === '',, datum['${field:groupKeys}'])",
      "as": "newGroupKeys"
      "calculate": "if('${field:groupKeys}' === ''  || datum['${field:groupKeys}'] === '', datum.color, datum['${field:groupKeys}'])",
      "as": "color"
    "joinaggregate": [
      "op" : "average",
      "field": "${field:y}",
      "as": "groupedY"
    "groupby": ["${field:x}", "newGroupKeys", "color", "grouped"]

Thanks! I will look into it.
