jsonData field for datasource plugins

I have been working on the kairosDB datasource for a while. I found that in the schema of grafana datasource, there is one field that is called jsonData which I assume is used for specific information details about the data source after looking at the graphite plugins and other currently supported plugins source code. Just want to make sure that this field is really free of use and will not be dumped or modified during or after grafana upgrades unless it is specified in the release or update notes.

Hi! Yes, this field is managed by the plugin, grafana doesn’t touch it. But remember - this field is exposed to the frontend, so don’t use it for secure data like passwords, if you can. There’s secureJsonData field for this purpose.
