View All Option in History

for me and i think for almost all users view all was and is a mess!

Let me explain:
First of all I use a NUC11 with NVME SSD so you can imagine is very fast. Used default SQL DB with recorder 1s write all was fine except from time to time db got corrupted. While using default DB view history for me was a pain, had to wait long time to see all stats and if I selected longer time range then default one, god help us all.

Then I switched to MariaDB and everything was a bit better but this did not help much with speed of displaying all the history and again selecting 2 or 3 days as time range god help us, it was so slow that i can make myself a coffee and still not done.

I have put the proposal not to restore the all view history like the previous versions of HA but to put in an option to view all the entity history at once to the present history view tab. Making such a option doesn’t mean that the present system is bad or should be removed.

I have already explained the logic by which i have put in such a request.

I dont think that the wants of the majority(even if it is the case) should out weight the minority. This is just majoritarianism. This feature request post ensures that the wants of the minority is also represented. Besides that like me most of the users who have up voted this might not be an expert/advanced user but even so they all will have there own logic to upvote.

Don’t get me wrong I also voted for this, just hoping here that someone will improve on it!


And it can be for sure if people don’t filter what they really need to see in history, there is a configuration capability already in place for that also exists for logging and recording to exclude what we don’t want do see/have. That’s why, like I explained, I fine tuned the recorder and excluded all the entity information that wasn’t relevant or completely useless and it will not show in history also.

Like it was mentioned not only by me, the history filter capability implemented in the latest 2022.7 release is very welcome and useful for everybody but it should have the option to show everything also.
I welcome and thank you for voting in this request, I hope more people do the same.

Like i already explained in other thread, implementation of wildcards would be way better. So, entering “%” would give you all entities, while entering “sensor.garage%” would display only all starting with entered info.

added my vote.
meanwhile you can do things like:

- title: History auto
  path: history-auto
  icon: mdi:history
  panel: true

    - type: entities
      title: History include all domains

        - entity: input_number.history_span

        - type: custom:config-template-card
            - input_number.history_span
            span: states['input_number.history_span'].state
            type: custom:auto-entities
              type: history-graph
              hours_to_show: ${span}
                style: |
                  ha-card {
                    box-shadow: none;
                    margin: 8px -16px 0px -16px;

                - domain: "*"

which does only show the recorded items (unlike the entity_selector…)

still trying to make it scroll, see 🔹 Card-mod - Add css styles to any lovelace card - #3438 by Mariusthvdb


I do like how the new option allows you to target what your looking for with faster load times while looking over a larger date range
but I also so want a full view still like we used to have

Added my vote, “view all option” is so important to check recorded entities (especially with having a sd card)!


Definitely, the full view is needed.
Im using the current syntax in the config file in order to declare what entity i need to see and the order.
In this way the loading was very fast…

use_include_order: true

With the new version this is not yet possible. :frowning: :sweat_smile:
Waiting for the fix.
Thanks in advance

Hi all, is there a chance of the All option in history being added in the next release? I really miss this to fine tune and optimize the entities I record in the database for better performance and keep the used space low.


Not sure if that’s an option for you, as it’s a custom card and not core, but the option to add all entities (and the use of wildcards) where just added to the latest version of history explorer card.


Hi, I was testing the card you suggested but didn’t know about the all possibility recently added, it’s useful for sure and it will help in the mean time. Thank you for that, excellent work.

For me one of the advantages of using the default history in HA is that when you fine tune the data that you want to be recorded, we can check that the entity doesn’t show data anymore and is not recorded anymore.

You mean you want to check if the recording of an entity you turned off really is off (or vice versa) ? That should work with any of the custom graphing cards too. It’s more a property of the underlying recorder component than of the history panel frontend. If an entity isn’t recorded anymore, it will just show a flatline on the graph from the moment the recording was turned off.

There is also a GitHub discussion regarding this Add the option to see all entities in the History tab? · Discussion #13146 · home-assistant/frontend · GitHub


The hystory view, filtered and ordered at configutation level was a very very good instrument to monitor the status of all the connected devices with a relative weight on the cpu.
Having lost it with the introduction of this release is a big miss :frowning:


This is amazing. I’ve started using the below card as a permanent replacement for the History Panel and History Graph Card. These features make it a huge improvement:

  • Easily recreate the existing History Panel with timelines and graphs. Colors can be transferred over so it looks identical and it can be added to the sidebar to mimic existing panel
  • Duration selector at the top to quickly pick timeframes to view
  • Graphs can be panned by dragging the mouse to show more data (all graphs move together)
  • All dates/times line up vertically, which was is a major nuisance with the existing History Panel
  • Entities can be setup manually in YAML so a default, defined view is always immediately ready (similar to the old History Panel)
  • Entities can be added on the fly using the entity picker drop down (this can be pre-filtered to only those entities that are actually recorded in your database with recordedEntitiesOnly: true)

Hi, today I decided to have a go with this history card and no regrets so far. I was waiting for the latest HA Core to be released and check if the History now had the option to see all but entities like before July release but it didn’t. I took the opportunity with this history card and optimized once more the sensor data that is recorded into the database, no garbage being stored. Regards, Luis Sismeiro

Me too, I often just wandered into history page just to get an overall glimpse on whole system. What happened, does everything work. Is something on for the whole day that shouldn’t be? Did I wrote something wrong, which in turn broke something? You can often notice such stuff looking on previous history page.

Don’t implement new features the way it removes already existing one.

It would be nice to have an option to view all default entities like in the previous version of the history.

I was troubleshooting why an automation wasn’t triggering and it turned out one of the phone’s sensors was the problem. The point is, it would have been easier if the sensor entity was easy to find in the history like it was with the previous version. I don’t even memorize all the phone’s sensors.

Add an option to show all the entities like in the previous version. Thanks.
