  4. Set how the JSON data will be displayed in the chart by indicating the properties to use for the y-axis and x-axis.

    It's typical to use a property that has a numerical value for the y-axis. If you are using the built-in sample JSON data, you can use either the download or upload property for the y-axis.

    Choosing a property for the y-axis

    The x-axis is normally used to display the labels of the items in the y-axis. If you are using our sample JSON data, you can use the name property for the x-axis.
