Is it possible to change the name of "x" for x data?

I receive data which I would like to chart. Unfortunately, it consist of records like

    abcisse: 5,
    ordonnee: 9

which I would like to feed into data.

The record above corresponds, in highcharts nomenclature, to

    x: 5,
    y: 9

Is it possible to inform highcharts that he should be looking for values of x in abcisse and for values of y in ordonnee? Or do I have to postprocess the data and create x and y entries?

You can use an array map function to convert your records to the format need my highcharts. For example, if your data is in an array called myData then you could feed your data to the series.data option using...

    series: [{
        data: myData.map(function (item) {return { x: item.abcisse, y: item.ordonnee}; })
