Repeat Panel with "include all" variable shows not data

Hi,

I’m trying to create a repeating panel showing some graph for every value of my “instance” variable. As soon as a enable the “Include all” option for the variable every panel just shows “No data in response” instead of my graph. When disabling “Include all” it works at least for individually selected instances but I would like to have it repeating for every instance…

  • What Grafana version and what operating system are you using?

Grafana v8.1.1 (90c87a52f7)

  • What are you trying to achieve?

I want my panel to repeat for every value of a variable.

  • How are you trying to achieve it?

See dashboard JSON below.

  • What happened?

The panel repeats but it says “No data in response” in every panel.

  • What did you expect to happen?

Panel should repeat showing a graph for every value of the instance variable.

  • Can you copy/paste the configuration(s) that you are having problems with?

  • Did you receive any errors in the Grafana UI or in related logs? If so, please tell us exactly what they were.

It just says “No data in response” for every panel.

Is this the behavior you want? I copied your JSON, changed the query to one that would work on my test instance, and then fiddled a tad with your variable config. See link to vid and the json here:
