InfluxDB datasource in Docker network - what URL?

UPDATE: Stupid, stupid mistake. I had set server (the name in the interface), not proxy as the value of access in datasources.yaml. The good news is: it works perfectly now :slight_smile:

My goal is to connect Grafana to Influx DB in a Docker network kwenv_default. The InfluxDB has container name and port kwenv_influxdb_1:8086. I’ve verified that it is accessible on the network at that name by writing to it from a node-red container.

PROBLEM: In Datasource, I cannot connect Grafana to InfluxDB via kwenv_influxdb_1:8086. “Save & Test” reports that the data source is working in Server access mode for that address. But dashboards display no data and a red exclamation mark. The Query Inspector returns ‘If you’re seeing this Grafana has failed to load its application files’.

I can connect by exposing InfluxDB’s ports to the host and hardcoding the host machine IP in Grafana’s datasource URL. But I don’t want InfluxDB accessible from the host, and I don’t want to have to configure the URL manually every install.

Can you advise why Grafana is unable to load its application files using a Docker container name and network, and how to configure it to do so?
