I am creating a relatively simple dashboard through the API on Grafana Cloud, which is going flawlessly.
The data source is cloudwatch. Again, this appears to be set up fine.
My issue is as follows:
The dashboard is created, but has no data points on the cloudwatch data source.
If I go in to edit the dashboard, and change anything, or even click the “Query Inspector”, it suddenly receives data points and the graph shows correctly.
I’ve compared the JSON representation of the dashboard both before and after, to ensure that something hasn’t been changed, and indeed there are no changes.
This is really tripping me up, and I can’t seem to work it out.
Does anyone have any ideas, or further advice on how to debug?
