Backend datasource plugin not appearing in plugin list

I am trying to make a simple backend datasource plugin, but for some reason it won’t show in my local grafana instance. I have already made a number of panel and datasource plugins that appear, but this is the first backend one. And I have followed all the instructions laid out here . It is in the same plugin directory as all the rest of my plugins so I am not sure what I am missing. Any thoughts?

So I noticed further down the troubleshooting (didn’t think to go further down the page, dumb oversight) to try to configure grafana for unsigned plugins. Unfortunately both links go to 404s haha. Are there updated links?

The ID of the plugin you’re developing should go in the ini file or env variable. Or you can run Grafana in development mode
