Hi, I am new to Grafana and I have started with AWS Managed Grafana (v8.0). My questions are: Can I manage multiple data sources in different AWS accounts from a single Grafana, or do I need a Grafana for each account? If possible, how do I link the dashboards to each data source to make my alerts independent?
Thank you very much.
@mdonaire you should be able to add multiple copies of any datasource that is allowed within AMG. So you could create 7 distinct Prometheus datasources, or multiple copies of the AWS Cloudwatch Datasource
I’m assuming you will be able to do this in AMG. If not, report back with details
Thanks for your reply @mattabrams! Then, how can I link my dashboards to each data source? I have to create alerts for each datasource/dashboard and the have to work simultaneously. All the dashboard should be managed from one Grafana…
Yes. I would suggest you explore our sandbox, play.grafana.org, and then view our docs on adding a datasource.
If you are asking how to view multiple datasources dynamically using one dashboard, you can create multiple queries–one for each resource. You can also use template variables like this
