How to add precise options in dropdown while creating variables?

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

  • What are you trying to achieve?
    I am trying to create a variable named Instances which gives me all the instances.
    For that I have a created the variable and using Label Values as resource.label.instances
    So now when I click on Instance dropdown I get a big string of instance like “projects/prj-gg-6ad1/locations/us-central1/instances/prod-kafka-general-us-central1” but I only want ''prod-kafka-general-us-central1".

  • How are you trying to achieve it?

“current”: {
“selected”: false,
“text”: “projects/prj-ft-psa-p-6ad1/locations/us-central1/instances/prod-redis-i-general-us-central1”,
“value”: “projects/prj-ft-psa-p-6ad1/locations/us-central1/instances/prod-redis-i-general-us-central1”
“datasource”: {
“type”: “stackdriver”,
“uid”: “IB9tbwA4z”
“definition”: “”,
“hide”: 0,
“includeAll”: false,
“label”: “Instance”,
“multi”: false,
“name”: “Instance”,
“options”: ,
“query”: {
