Getting Started docs and guides


#1

Is there a youtube ‘getting started’ video that walks one through creating a dashboard in GrafanaCloud? Or a beginner’s document? I find tons on the non-cloud Grafana but the interface while similar isn’t identical and so cannot use that to figure out the interface in the cloud version. Thanks!


#2

The UI should be identical. There is no special fork of Grafana for GrafanaCloud. Are you having a specific problem (not being able to create users etc.)?

Hi Daniel – Yes, at first I thought the GUI was different but subsequently see it does have the same interface. Thank you for the reply.

Sitting with same questions, happy to call me stupid, I am at the moment.

I created the login, now what, I’m collecting data via Python scripts, (locally also storing in a Mysql database), which I want to send it to Grafana/Cloud and then graph.
Can someone point me to a youtube clip or a doc that tells me how.

Thinking I first need to create a datastore on Grafana, then get the data there through some upload call, and then create the graphs on the Grafana sight that visualise my data.

@tinman In your case it might be easier to use a local Grafana (it is really easy on all platforms) than to try and connect GrafanaCloud and your mysql server over the internet.
