Relative time regions

Hi, how can I create a relative time-region in a time-series chart?

I’ve tried the obvious syntax of now-24h but that doesn’t seem to be supported.


Hi @plsalvado relative time ranges can be set at the dashboard level or the panel level via queries - if you’re doing it at the panel level it will override the dashboard time setting:

General time range info:

Panel query time options:

Thanks for the quick response. @samcoren do you have an example? I believe my problem is slightly different. I want to highlight the last 24hr of a chart - and always the last 24hr - by using the time region feature within a panel. If you could point me to an example it’d be great.

Any ideas from anyone?

I wish I had a good answer, but it really doesn’t look like this is possible currently. I was looking for something similar and have not found any information to the contrary.

The UI also seems to indicate the same thing - that all time regions are specified in UTC time explicitly as shown below:


You can also see in the images that the time regions have placeholder text of “hh:mm” which seems to indicate again that you have to use an absolute time instead of a relative time.

Seems like this one will require an enhancement unfortunately.
