What Grafana version and what operating system are you using?
- Grafana v10.1.2
What are you trying to achieve?
I want to create a new variable called “Project” that has the Query type of Label values and the label set to prometheus_group, which will then change the view of my dashboard accordingly.
How are you trying to achieve it?
I’ve imported the Kubernetes dashboard from: Kubernetes cluster monitoring (via Prometheus) | Grafana Labs
For all of my Prometheus metrics, I have 2 configured labels:
- cluster - The GKE cluster name.
- prometheus_group - The GCP Project name.
When I create the label and click on “Run query” nothing happens.
To be honest, I don’t know what to expect here.
Should something happen? I would’ve thought at least an “OK” message of some kind would appear.
Regardless, nothing changes on the dashboard; I think because the “Node” variable is set to “All” and doesn’t filter based on what I select within Project.
It looks like I need to add a label filter to this variable, but when I select the Prometheus_group label and the $Project value, the Prometheus_group label disappears, and the dropdown returns to “Select label”. I’ve attached screenshots below to demonstrate this.
What did you expect to happen?
I would expect to be able to adjust the Node variable to filter based on what I’ve selected in the Project variable I’ve configured.
Is this some sort of bug in the UI?
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!
