in short terms: Can we easily find a dashboard by any kind of string used in the dashboard?
Now the long description of my question:
We created many dashboards and panels for our Graphite data source.
Sometimes it’s very hard to find the dashboard or even the panel which shows the information for a specific metric or graph. Often we remember the name of the panel or even the name of something we used to create a graph - the name of a used metric or a function which we used in the editor.
It would be very helpful if we could do two things:
- find a dasboard by the name of a panel contained in the dashboard
- find a dashboard or even a panel by the name of the metric or function name or an alias name or in general any string we used in the editor
At the moment we are thinking about using the API + jq (cmdline tool to pretty print JSON) and grep for this information.
With /api/search we can find the internal dashboard-uri of all dashboards.
With /api/dashboards/dashboard-uri we can get all panel names and formulas.
But perhaps this kind of search already exists in some way. Cause the more graphs someone creates the harder it is to find the dashboard containing this graph.
Hope that anybody can give me a hint.
Thanks a lot in advance.
