I’m new to Grafana and InfluxDB so maybe this is a silly question but I can’t get to figure it out.
I want to query some data from an InfluxDB (v2.3.0+SNAPSHOT.090f681737) database with Grafana ( Grafana Enterprise 9.0.1 ). In order to do so, I’m trying to:
GrafanaWebPage - Configuration - Data sources - Add data source - Choose InfluxDB
Here I manage to get a connection ( below are my connection details )
– HTTP Section –
Access: Server (default)
Allowed Cockies: Empty
– AUTH Section –
Basic auth: False
TLS Client Auth: False
Skip TLS Verify: False
Forward OAuth Identity: False
With Credentials: False
With CA Cer: False
–Custom HTTP Headers Section –
Header Authorization Value Token <Token from InfluxDB load-data/tokens>
–InfluxDB Details Section –
Here is where I have issues!
Database: should be the database name [mapped to your InfluxDB 2.3 bucket]
User: should be the username associated with your [InfluxDB 1.x compatibility authorization
Password: should be the password associated with your [InfluxDB 1.x compatibility authorization]
HTTP Method: GET
But the only method I found to map the database and get user and password are to use InfluxDB CLI, which is gone and not implemented as it used to be. Is this the only way I have to connect to InfluxDB?
PS: If I leave the InfluxDB Details Section empty and click on Save & Test it says “Data source is working” but can’t find any bucket or any data.
I’ve followed this manual Use Grafana with InfluxDB OSS | InfluxDB OSS 2.3 Documentation
Thanks for the help,
