Alternatives to use CSV datasources on Grafana Cloud

Hi, is there a way to use CSV plugin on Grafana Cloud without having to have my own server?
At first I was intended to do it via a NGINX webserver, but due to company rules I can´t have an open port.

Then tried doing it by uploading the CSV on Google Drive and Grafana and appears it could be succesfull but when trying to explore the data I get this:

Tried the same CSV on local mode on the localport:3000 and works correctly. But I really need to share a Dashboard with other people.

Is there another host server I could use for this?

Did you try TestData datasource type and CSV content there?

You cant have data with missing delimeter

Yes, tried both on local mode and have no issue. But on Grafana Cloud the CSV doens´t work with the Drive link, dont know if Drive is the reason the error appears

Which error ? Is there a new error
The previous error is due to junk data

I checked the line that gives the error and everything is alright, even so I tried loading a file with only 24 rows and it still gets the error on line 28

so the file still has junk empty rows

Created a new file with only the needed rows and only string data but still Grafana gives me the same error.

You only copied the link as it is?? At least I know now that it works haha might be something on my plugin or something.

what link did you use when you setup the data source? try it with infinity plugin just for test purposes.

Check this out as you can see I had to convert it to google sheet which is different than a csv file in google sheet

Hi, just for update. Used your dashboard as example to replicate the data source, firstly on Infinity and then on the CSV plugin. It worked after several attempts haha. Thanks a lot for your support!
