Is it possible to remove default plugins of grafana?

Hello friends, I’m trying to deploy a dashboard system but would like to remove the default panel plugins that come with grafana… is that possible?

Hi. There is currently no way to disable the builr in panels. What is your use case?

If you built Grafana from source you can delete the panels you want from public/app/plugins/panel/
You’ll also have to remove the imports from public/app/features/plugins/built_in_plugins.ts

then just run yarn dev and you’re good to go

If you just don’t want certain plugins to be shown in the Visualization picker and built Grafana from source, you could add a method to public/app/features/dashboard/panel_editor/VizTypePicker.tsx:

hidePlugins = (pluginList: PanelPluginMeta[], pluginIds: string[]): PanelPluginMeta[] => {
  const filtered = pluginList.filter(plugin => {
    return !pluginIds.includes(plugin['id']);

  return filtered;

Then change the render() method as follows and pass the list of panels you want to hide:

let filteredPluginList = this.getFilteredPluginList();
filteredPluginList = this.hidePlugins(filteredPluginList, ['logs', 'pluginlist']);
