Data Links on beta panels not working in 8.x

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

  • What are you trying to achieve?
    Create a data link in the “Status History” panel, I also tried the new bar chart

  • How are you trying to achieve it?
    Navigate to “Data Link” and enter a URL

  • What happened?
    There’s no link showing and nothing happens when clicking in the visualisations. This is the case for all “beta” visualisations.

  • What did you expect to happen?
    Get a data link like in the other visualisations.

  • Did you follow any online instructions? If so, what is the URL?
    Data links | Grafana Labs

It appears like this is showing in the UI but not yet enabled in the backend.


Is this confirmed? I tried to use Data Links with beta of Bar Chart on v8.0.6, and I got nothing, indeed it looks like those are still disabled on betas?

I’m not sure if the teams have rolled out this functionality yet…
