idRepresents the tile's unique id. This is a technical id used to identify the panels and MUST be unique throughout the .json file.
pluginRepresents the type of indicators to be displayed in the tile. The plugins that are available are listed below under Plugin parameters.
colorOptional parameter that describes the tile color theme to be used. A light grey color is used if none is defined. Colors are currently limited to:
  • blue
  • black
  • dark grey
  • orange
  • green
  • purple
  • light grey
  • yellow

Optional parameter provides the ability to expand tiles in size (large and small):


Optional parameter that (when set to true - the default position) will truncate a plugin's title text if it is longer than the size of the tile (whether a large or small tile). Using this parameter may lead to visually less consistent dashboards.

The default value is true, where the font size used for a plugin's title text will be reduced so that the title text fits the tile size. To deactivate the autoFit option, you need to specifically add the parameter to your plugin and set it to false.

parameters This section contains plugin specific parameters. Please refer to each of the following plugin definitions under Plugin parameters for more information about this.

Technical Size Measures parameters

Only available in app.json.


At portfolio (cmp.json) and application level (app.json), it is possible to define tiles with custom expressions. A custom expression is defined through a mathematical subset representation involving operations on criteria values (e.g. the ratio of number of lines of codes per critical violations or the count of applications with more than n files).

The tile can represent averaged values (excluding the application not having one of the values such as a background fact or some sizing measure, or those whose function calculation result is infinite) or a total value. For comparison, business criteria scores are average while sizing is usually a total on the portfolio. 

Custom expression tiles can be defined for the current snapshot state (most recent snapshot for all applications at portfolio level or selected snapshots at application level), or via evolutions. 

The mathematical formula available involve the following expression patterns:






Other classic patterns are available but may not be supported by the CAST Application Analytics Dashboard in terms of rendering (i.e. those returning non numerical values such as booleans).
