There is no property in the chart to rotate it, there is a reason behind it. As you have timestamp on x axis which is basically yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss. As your points on x axis will increase and if you have many data points then it will be difficult to read it as this timestamp will collide with each other. Having said that, you can click on any timestamp point and it will show you the value even you can navigate to other points through keyboard only. Still if you want to see the timestamp horizontally then better you add a horizonatalsliderzoom from the chart property, using this if you move the slider to the left and as soon as your data points can adjust properly it will come horizontally just like below:

Hi @VaibhavShinde 

 

Thank for reaching out to us. Can you check chart type under properties. It is column chart or bar chart. I believe by setting this you can align you chart vertically and horizontally respectively. Do let me know for further question.

Hi @mgoel ,

Thanks for reply , but i think you didn't get my requirement. i want only to rotate the time which you see at x-axis .

i want each time text horizontally.

 

thanks

Ok, is it possible to attach your entities export here. I can give it a try at my end and check it if it works or not.
