Grafana Time Series Data is missing a number field

Hey

I am using influxdb and telegraf for collecting SNMP information from temperature/humanity sensors (Didactum Monitoring). I want to visualize it as Time Series graph but I get the error: Data is missing a number field.
If I visualize it as table it shows me date + value, so I dont understand why grafana cant visualize it as graph.
I worked before with Grafana and mysql as data source, I never had any kind of this problems.

Debug it with the query inspector. I bet your last value is a string and not an number. "28" (string) is not the same as 28 (int). The best option is to check field type on the InfluxDB level.

Would be great if @chrisleed updated this thread with his resolution. Iā€™d certainly like to know. :slight_smile: Or maybe your string/int comment clarified things.

this is solved by @jangaraj answer,
you need to have time and number as column type to be able to use timeseries panel
