Grafana dropdown tiles not Showing on Dashboard

  • What Grafana version and what operating system are you using?

  • Grafana v8.1.3 (a61f38238c)

  • What are you trying to achieve?
    Creating a dashboard by sourcing the data from Graphite. The data is being fed into Graphite by using lighthouse reports which I want to be shown into Grafana dashboard

  • How are you trying to achieve it?
    Sending the data to Graphite using below command and I am able to integrate this with my Grafana and also can see the data in the dashboard

lighthouse-graphite https://www.mywebsite.com/help --run=3 --graphite-host=mygraphitehost --graphite-prefix=lighthouse.mywebsite_com

  • What happened?
    I can see the data being generated into Grafana but the dropdown panels are not visible. I have 3 different websites with multiple pages and I want to show all of them in Grafana. User should be able to select the domain/url/page from the dropdown and accordingly data should populate

  • What did you expect to happen?

  • Can you copy/paste the configuration(s) that you are having problems with?

  • Did you receive any errors in the Grafana UI or in related logs? If so, please tell us exactly what they were.

  • Did you follow any online instructions? If so, what is the URL?

Have you created variables for your dashboard?

Once you have created the variables, they then have to be used in the queries. You can see some example dashboards for graphite on the play site:

https://play.grafana.org/d/cvDFGseGz/graphite-templated-nested?orgId=1

This is the app variable - the edit mode in the dashboard settings:

And this is the variable being used in a Graphite query - the $app variable is substituted for the value from the dropdown when the query is executed:
