Help on Using World map plugin

  • What Grafana version and what operating system are you using?
    Grafana v8.2.5 (b57a137acd) using browser.
    OS: windows 10

  • What are you trying to achieve?
    I’m trying to show on the map a few points of interest for me as they change boolean value (true/false) and color ofcourse.

  • How are you trying to achieve it?
    I have a .json file with the coordinates for the points of interest and I don’t understand where to put it. aswell, I have the boolean data using InfluxDB

  • What happened?
    nothing because I don’t understand how to integrate the .json file and the InfluxDB data.

  • What did you expect to happen?
    I expected the plugin would be easier to use and to be able to see the data of points of interest on the map. I’m new to this.

  • 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.
    nothing which I noticed.

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

A few things. Don’t use the Worldmap panel. Use the Geomap panel. Geomap replaced Worldmap in Grafana 8.

There are a number of ways to mock up data from a static json file. try using the JSON API plugin:
