I am using Terraform to automate rule_group and dashboard generation. But I don’t think this solution is terraform specific. I currently have a 1 - 1 mapping between a rule in a group and a panel in a dashboard. Based on the exported config of rules, it looks like rules are linked to panels using
__panelId__. I was able to populate the
__dashboardUid__ from the
grafana_dashboard tf resource. But I am not sure how I should populate
Some of the approaches I tried:
panelIdfor each panel in grafana_dashboard. But looks like the panelId field in rules wants the value of
idfor each panel in grafana_dashboard. But looks like this value is ignored when I run
- Using the index of panel and rule. Both the panels and rules are generated by iterating over a yaml file. It looks like this is working but I am not 100% if this will always work.
