Hi! We are on Grafana
v8.3.1 and we are setting up the “Google Cloud Monitoring” datasource with code using Terraform like in the example here.
Is there a way to import the pre-configured dashboards for the “Google Cloud Monitoring” datasource?
I was looking at the dashboard resource which suggests that I can import a dashboard from
grafana.com provided with the correct
json but what should I provide to import the pre-configured ones?
Thanks in advance!
welcome to the forum, @abousias
where are you deploying to? a vm or a cluster? There are different strategies for provisioning dashboards, but they all fall short of where we would like them to be. There is a massive effort this year to properly schematize dashboards so they can be integrated into a true as-code git-ops-esque workflow.
there is also a lot of work to be done on our terraform provider. I don’t think there is a batteries-included way to, say, download and install preconfigured dashboards x,y, and z from Grafana.com. But that would be awesome…
@abousias Did you ever find a way to provision the dashboards that worked well for you? I was working with the Terraform provider for the first time yesterday and was able to make reasonably good progress, so I’d be happy to lend whatever Terraform / DevOps expertise I can.
