What Grafana version and what operating system are you using?
Grafana v9.4.0beta1 (1b0f5f0a81) on Ubuntu 20.04.5 LTS
What are you trying to achieve?
Create clickable links within a Canvas panel
How are you trying to achieve it?
From what I’ve been able to find online, the current method for creating clickable links in a Canvas panel is via Data Links, but I have had no luck seeing any change to Canvas elements after adding a Data Link to the Canvas panel
No clickable links
What did you expect to happen?
Can you copy/paste the configuration(s) that you are having problems with?
No. It’s very likely I’m missing something obvious, but I can’t connect the Data Link panel-level item with individual elements.
Did you receive any errors in the Grafana UI or in related logs? If so, please tell us exactly what they were.
Did you follow any online instructions? If so, what is the URL?
The following links point to various GitHub pages and Grafana documentation, but I’m missing the missing link:
I love the finer control over layout that the Canvas panel type offers, but the last thing that’s keeping me from rolling out a proof of concept for a summary status dashboard that links down into detailed views of the systems being summarized is the ability to click on a Canvas element to browse between Grafana dashboards.
What would help me the most are step by step instructions that show how add a Canvas element within a dashboard panel that goes to a URL when it is clicked. Thanks!
@markstokosa I was able to create a data link, but it’s showing as a tooltip for every element. I’m going to follow up with our devs to find out (and document) how to link the data link to a specific element.
