I’ve just installed Grafana 6.1.2 on a Debian 9.8 server, with InfluxDB as the local data source.
I’ve managed to get Grafana to recognise the data source, but I am unable to create any queries.
The Home screen tells me I have installed Grafana and created my first Data Source - the next step it offers is to create a New Dashboard.
I click on New Dashboard, and get a screen with a “New Panel” containing three options - “Add Query”, “Choose Visualisation” and “Convert to Row”. None of this looks like the begineers’ guide documented at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sKNZMtoSHN4
If I click on “Add Query”, I get a grid display with four icons at the left, and a bar containing “Queries to” with “default” selected. I can change this to “InfluxDB” if I want to.
Over to the right of this bar are buttons “Add Query”, “Query Inspector” and a Question Mark. Clicking on any of these does absolutely nothing.
So, having created my data source (and I’ve confirmed with the “influx” command that it does indeed contain data), how do I get Grafan to show any of it?
