Configuration options for the series are given in three levels:

  2. Options for all area series are defined in plotOptions.area.
  3. Options for one single series are given in the series instance array.
Highcharts.chart('container', {
    plotOptions: {
        series: {
            // general options for all series
        },
        area: {
            // shared options for all area series
        }
    },
    series: [{
        // specific options for this series instance
        type: 'area'
    }]
});
