- What Grafana version and what operating system are you using?
- What are you trying to achieve?
I have a Postgres (TimescaleDB) data source and as part of a query in a panel, I’m trying to call a procedure refresh_continuous_aggregate that can not be ran inside a transaction. It’s not too important why but roughly, I want to only update the aggregate when querying the data and only in the time scale that user picked in Grafana.
- How are you trying to achieve it?
In the query window, I simply want to do something like:
CALL refresh_continuous_aggregate('my_agg', $__timeFrom(), $__timeTo()); -- the actual query using my_agg SELECT blah, bluh FROM my_agg WHERE …;
- What happened?
The database comes back with
error:"db query error: pq: refresh_continuous_aggregate() cannot run inside a transaction block"
- What did you expect to happen?
I thought the code would work as-is, just like it does when pasted over into psql.
I can’t find anywhere online struggling because of this problem nor can I find any information about making Grafana not wrap the queries in transactions.
