unique prefix:

Make sure it has a unique prefix. Because it is used to plot the components of the scanner on the graph. The unique prefix will avoid conflicting with any other indicators on the same chart.

“A1” and “A2” so the dashboards will not conflict. And use different x_axis and y_axis for positioning.

Update after reading:
