Clean Up Display Names


First time using Grafana and InfluxDB. I am aggregating license plate activity and wish to display that data in various forms. I have both InfluxDB 2.7.1 and Grafana 10.0.3 installed on a Windows machine.

I have a nice doughnut/pie graph showing license plates added and grouped to show the plates most seen. All I am trying to do is clean up the display names. Currently, the plate is listed with the prefix _field in front of them. I want to clean that up and remove _field. I am not sure how to do that with overrides but I probably can just clean that in my query somehow, yes?

I would try to use Grafana transformation - regexp rename.

Well, your tip got me there. I could have used a bit more information but after some more Googling, and a lucky guess, I think I got it.
