ZingChart currently supports linear, logarithmic, and time-series scales on the y-axis. Use the scaleY object to configure your scale. Refer to the X/Y-Axis Scale Configuration Tutorial for more information.

Below is an example structure of scale object:

"scale-y" : {...},
"scale-y-2" : {...},
scaleY: {...},
scaleY2: {...},
