Show timestamp values but grouping in x axis

Hi everyone,

I'm newbie on PBI and I want to create a chart which I have already have on excel.
I have a dataset with timestamp values. The timestamp values are so frequent I want to show them all on one view, but I couldn't do that. As far as I know I need to group timestamp on x axis but I need to show all labels on scatter chart.

My dataset looks like;

11/28/2021 0:00AXFAIL55.98
11/28/2021 0:01AXOK10.28
11/28/2021 0:02AXOK11.86
11/28/2021 0:03AYFAIL27.93
11/28/2021 0:04AYOK16.52
11/28/2021 0:05BZOK28.18
11/28/2021 0:06BZFAIL53.45
11/28/2021 0:07BZOK67.48
11/28/2021 0:08BTOK63.27

The view which It need to be looks like.


I tried to group timestamp values like 30-40 minutes interval but when I do that I couldn't show all values on the chart. It always needs aggregation. I don't want to aggregate my measure. I need them separetly.

You can find the all dataset and pbix file on this drive link.

Step1,create hierachy.



Step 2, create visual:


Step3,click as the below,and short by x column:




Step 4, close concatenate labels:

@baueduc298 , You need have DateTime on X axis as categorical . In all other option it will group data .

Scatter visual , In that if you want use some time bucket then you can use datetime as details

Hi @amitchandak ,
Thank you for your answer but It doesn't work for me.
I think It was about 2 reason.
1- When you have more than 1 dimension in x axis, continuous option is not working.
2- It still not working even you have only 1 dimension(timestamp) on scatter chart.

I need x axis like that,

But It always shows like that.
