Generate dashboards automatically from InfluxDB measurements

Hello everyone,

I am on Grafana v8.4.3 on a Windows operating system.

My grafana instance is linked to an InfluxDB database and I would like to generate dashboards automatically form the measurements in InfluxDB.

As you can see on the screenshot, I have some dashboards that I created manually for each measurement. But I would like to know if there is a way to create all of them just by retrieving all the measurements from InfluxDB, because each dashboard is the same except his measurement name.

Also, I know that I can retrieve the measurement name with a query variable and then select the measurement. But I want to see all the dashboard of every measurement on the same panel.

Thank you in advance!


I assume you can import one dashboard made by the community.

You can take a look here to see all the InfluxDB Dashboard made : Dashboards | Grafana Labs

Then you can just import one using ID or JSON.

Thank you, but it’s not exactly what I want.

I already have the dashboard type that I want.
And I would like that, for each measurement that I have in the InfluxDB database, It generates automatically a dashboard corresponding to each measurement that I have.

Maybe this might help

  1. create a buckets variable using

  2. Create a measurements variable (I cant seem to use the $buckets variable to filter things so for sake of example I just added learninfluxdb

Then following this for repeated panels


But I would use the following approach cause you would have more control

Sorry for the late response,
The solution in the first link that you share with the Repeat by variable works perfectly for that I want to do.
Thank you very much @yosiasz !
