Auto grouping or bin?

I'm looking for something which can do the auto grouping/slice given K values.
We have the table showing execution time by count(X axis is duration time, Y axis is count). As shown below, the graph has a long tail which takes a lot of space.

What we want is to have 4bins to group all these data, like 0-100, 100-500, 500-2000, 2000-5000, range automatically figured by the value count for each bin(each bin got 1/4 value counts). If we can group this into first 25%, 50%, ... 99% that will be even better. Expected look as below:

And since we have so many data, it's also hard to do manual grouping. Any idea?

Hi irta,

According to your description, my understanding is that you want to auto group your data in X-axis to 4 part.

In this scenario, we can use the grouping and binning function in PowerBI desktop. Please refer to the following steps:

  1. Right-click on the field (in this scenario is duration time) you want to group, select “New Group”.
  2. Then configure it like below:111.png
  3. After that drag this bin and count measure to visual, the result will like below:222.png

For more information, please refer to this document: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/desktop-grouping-and-binning

Best Regards,
