What Grafana version and what operating system are you using?
What are you trying to achieve?
Trying to get Data Link on a TimeSeries visualization to work with a data series field that contains a string (works great when field is a number).
How are you trying to achieve it?
On a Table visualization, I am using a field override for a string field, then adding a Data Link using the contents of that string field as a variable in the URL. My data series contains several number and several string fields.
On a TimeSeries visualization, my data series is the same as my Table panel, several number and several string fields. When I try to configure a field override, the Data Link will not work because there appears to be only two fields present that can have overrides. If I try index past field, I get undefined, because there is no field value available. I can index field and field just fine.
When viewing the panel editor, the “table” view shows all my fields. The TimeSeries chart, however, does not seem to have all of the fields available to override.
What did you expect to happen?
My Table panel allows my to override one of my string fields with a Data Link override, and it works great to pass the string as a variable to a dashboard URL. My TimeSeries panel does not show a datalink available when I click on a datapoint, because there is no string field available to override.
Can you copy/paste the configuration(s) that you are having problems with?
Yes. I will upload images of my configuration.
Did you receive any errors in the Grafana UI or in related logs? If so, please tell us exactly what they were.
No error logs that I know of.
Did you follow any online instructions? If so, what is the URL?
I followed instructions for field overrides, and for a Table panel, everything works quite nicely.
