Count annotations with the given tag

  • What Grafana version and what operating system are you using?

  • What are you trying to achieve?
    We need to count annotations with the given tag e.g. count all the annotations with tag “environment:production” and display the count on the dashboard.
    So we are looking for a way to query the annotations.

  • How are you trying to achieve it?
    We use Http APIs to post the annotations.
    We use the default datasource ~Grafana~ (PostgreSQL based) to store the annotations.
    Created an annotation with a filter on tag - environment:production. We are able to see the annotations on a panel. But we do not see a way to count those.

  • What happened?
    No option to query ~Grafana~ datasource.

  • What did you expect to happen?
    Hoped to see an option to query the ~Grafana~ datasource

  • Can you copy/paste the configuration(s) that you are having problems with?

  • 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?
    This url for APIs - Annotations HTTP API | Grafana documentation
    Did not find anything on querying ~Grafana~ data source.
