How to modify real-time data plot axis on power bi service

I set up a streaming data from senser to power bi service but I want to change the axis in a way the temperature in the x-axis and the timestamp on the y-axis,(pictured below )



This is a streaming temperature data comes from IoT device in Azure database. The main idea is to plot with in comparison with other plots which are verical time stamp. 

Thanks for your support.

Hi @Agapi ,


The line chart for real-time data currently only supports fields of the datetime type as the x-axis. As @lbendlin said, you can present your ideas in the power bi ideas.

I am not aware of a visual that would support vertical line charting.   How are these other plots constructed?

Hei Ibendlin. 

Thaks for your reply. The other plots are not power BI. They are geothermal plots with depth( which usually is a vertical plot).  The streaming one is integrated with the software and the history data ploted by Python. both vertical and I wanted the sensor temp will have the same plot to compare with it.


Thanks in Advace 

It's a great idea - you might want to raise it at .


Not sure if Deneb or Charticulator visuals can do this.

Thanks Ibendlin


I tried both Deneb or Charticulator but they dont have a luxary for changing the axis the way I explained. 


I will update when I found a solution. 

Maybe is an option?  @Mayank_Yavda 


Edit:  Just tried it and it certainly seems to work




Note that this requires a registration with them, and payment if you want to use the visual for longer.
