I’m trying to install the Grafana mqtt-datasource plugin on my Ubuntu 20.04 machine to collect data via MQTT source on the same network:
I followed the detailed instructions here:
The prerequisits seems to have installed successfully, all to the end.
However, when I try to search for the MQTT plug-in within the Grafana desktop environment, it does not appear in the search results (the last set of instructions). I don’t know if I incorrectly configured the config file or if it was an install issue?
Here are some snippets of for the config file:
For the path:
# Directory where grafana will automatically scan and look for plugins ;plugins = /var/lib/grafana/plugins plugins = /grafana-plugins/
For the above path, I tried also insert hostname/pi/ before the /grafana-plugins/ path, and that didnt work either.
For the plugin:
[plugins] ;enable_alpha = false ;app_tls_skip_verify_insecure = false # Enter a comma-separated list of plugin identifiers to identify plugins to load even if they are unsigned. Plugins with modified signatures are never loade> allow_loading_unsigned_plugins = mqtt-datasource
for the plugin, since I named the folder “mqtt-datasource”, in “grafana-plugins”, so put it as that, in addition to what the isntructions say, “grafana-mqtt-datasource”, neither of them worked.
and here is the folder where i did the build and install along with path:
Now, when Im in the desktop environment, I simply search for mqtt and it simply doesn’t show up.
any help would be greatly appreciated!
