External Plugin Installation on Enterprise Grafana


I’ve set up a local server to visualize data from a PLC device. Now, I want to visualize this data on Grafana using a special plugin designed for this intermediate server. I’ve already downloaded the plugin as a .zip file, which contains a build file.

To install the private plugin, I copied the sample.ini file, renamed it to ‘custom’, uncommented the port number, and then restarted Grafana. Additionally, I placed the .zip file in the directory ‘\GrafanaLabs\grafana\data\plugins’, and restarted Grafana again. However, I’m not seeing anything in the Datasource section on Grafana.

Could someone please advise me on how to resolve this issue?

Kind regards,
