Repeating row variable not working

Not sure what I’m doing wrong, but I cannot get a repeating row variable to work…

I’m using Grafana 8.4.4 via docker, and have set-up a repeating row on a variable (node).

Using that repeating row variable in the panel title (${node}) works, but using it in the query itself returns no results.

If I replace node_cpu_seconds_total{instance="${node}"} with node_cpu_seconds_total{instance=""}, then the query works, so I’m not sure why it isn’t picking up the desired result when using ${node}.

Maybe try this



Can you check the following out{env%3D"demo",instance%3D"",job%3D"alertmanager"}%201%201670819526000&

Huh, weird, node_cpu_seconds_total{instance=~"$node"} did indeed work…

Why would that work when a normal comparison operator (node_cpu_seconds_total{instance="$node"}) doesn’t?

Wrapping it in quotes for the title, there isn’t any additional spacing or anything…

Thank you :slight_smile:

I believe dofferent data source do the variable filtering differently, which is wack

Ah I see!
