Custom plugin path for grafana windows


I am trying to create a grafana panel plugin on windows, so I followed the step

  1. inside conf folder I copied defaults.ini and remane it custom.ini
  2. change path [paths] plugins = “C:\dev\grafana”
  3. create grafana plugin with npx @grafana/toolkit plugin:create my-plugin and build
  4. restart grafana

But not getting my-plugin in grafana list I am using grafana 8.1.5 is there any issue to declare absolute plugin path plugins = “C:\dev\grafana”

Have you looked in the server logs? Grafana ignores unsigned plugins by default so you need to explicitly allow the unsigned plugin with GF_PLUGINS_ALLOW_LOADING_UNSIGNED_PLUGINS, or enable development mode with GF_DEFAULT_APP_MODE.
