we are transferring data from our legancgy system to InfluxDB and Grafana and talking about the data model structure.
We are aware that you can use an alias instead of the non-human-friendly signal id (or UUID). It looks like that you have to enter them manually in Grafana which is prone to a certain risk of typos etc.
We are wondering if the signal description and unit can be added to the InfluxDB and queried by a standardized query wherein on the Signal-ID change.
Is that possible?
How to change “what should be displayed as Legend on the graph ?” - Grafana Support / InfluxDB - Grafana Labs Community Forums seems to go in the same direction but there is not a final yes or no.
