Drilldown using images, canvas, and drop outs


I am using v9.3.4 on Yocto.

  • What are you trying to achieve?
    I would like a user to see a picture of, say, a rack of servers, then they can click a server and it will drill down to another view/image. And to continue doing that deeper and deeper. And on each view be able to click on portions for other information.

  • How are you trying to achieve it?
    I sort of tried data links. ‘Buttons’ in canvas element types won’t display in the drop down menu.

  • What happened?
    I just don’t know how to achieve what I’m aiming for.

  • Did you follow any online instructions? If so, what is the URL?
    I’ve not found any instructions, either. But I’ll happily be signposted. As for searching the forums, I have looked, but struggled to form the correct search terms; again apologies. I’m happy to be signposted


+1 any examples of UI navigation out there ? Or is Grafana not capable of this easily and is meant to be used as a monolithic dashboard ?
