There is a roundabout way for having different colors for the bars.

But here, the trade-off is the dashboard performance.

You may overlap multiple charts, each with different colored bars and 100% transparency.

Each chart will have only one bar.

For example, if you've 5 bars, use 5 similar charts, with one bar each (diff color) and overlap one over the other in the order of the bar.

Hi Sourabh,

A stack can have multiple colors based on the number of Series in your chart; i.e., each Series can have a different color.

Each bar in the chart represents each Category. It is not possible to have different colors for each Category. There is no option available.

So, basically a Bar can have multiple colors but all the Bars have to be consistent in a Chart.

Hi Sourabh,

A series in a chart can have only one color(appearance->series->and change the individual series colors) . Having different colors, for the bars, in the Stacked Bar Chart is only possible by using "Alerts". But again the alerts is limited to 9 , which means the coloring is possible only for 9 bars.
Try that out, hope this helps.!

This is only possible if using one series of data.
