Panel Datasource not accessable when using collapsed row

  • What Grafana version and what operating system are you using?
    Grafana 9 on Centos 8

  • What are you trying to achieve?
    Using a table panel as a datasource for other panels in the same dashboard.

  • How are you trying to achieve it?
    Link SQL query to Table panel, then link other panels to panel datasource.

  • What happened?
    When the table panel is visible the panels using it as a datasource populate, however, if you put the table panel in a collapsed Row to hide the source data from view, the panels using the table as a datasource are unable to access the data. i assume this is because the panel has not loaded the data when it isn’t visible.

  • What did you expect to happen?
    panel needs to either have an option to be hidden OR an option to tell it to populate the data if hidden

  • Did you receive any errors in the Grafana UI or in related logs? If so, please tell us exactly what they were.
    No, just no data
