Subcategory

Base type for subcategories.

All widgets within a subcategory will be rendered in the Matomo (formerly Piwik) reporting UI under the same page. By default you do not have to specify any subcategory as they are created automatically. Only create a subcategory if you want to change the name for a specific subcategoryId or if you want to specifiy a different order so the subcategory appears eg at a different order in the reporting menu. It also affects the order of reports in API.getReportMetadata and wherever we display any reports.

To define a subcategory just place a subclass within the Categories folder of your plugin.

Subcategories can also be added through the Subcategory.addSubcategories event.
