I’m working adding a feature to Grafana graphs that I’d like to gauge interest in from the community and maintainers. The goal of the feature is to be able to add events to a graph as clickable targets. I have a rough sketch of how this would look (video: https://www.dropbox.com/s/m6x2odr8n31ym2d/grafana-clickable-event.mov?dl=0).
The specific use case we have in mind is being able to connect this to our tracing system so that individual traces can be overlayed with timeseries data and accessed quickly. This could also be useful for connecting it to logging systems, or anything else with discrete events.
The current implementation is specific to this specific data source, and is not appropriate for upstream. My question is whether a patch to grafana that makes this a first-class primitive in the Graph panel would be valuable to the community and considered by the maintainers.
