We’ve been using Grafana (8.4.x) which runs on a Linux LXD container for a couple months now and have been very happy with out results so far. Our data is low frequency timeseries data which comes out of a Postgres table. Nothing special there.
One thing which I haven’t been able to achieve is to save an absolute time range along with the dashboard itself.
In the upper right timeframe dropdown, on the absolute side, I would enter something like
Absolute time range From now-1400d To now+100d [ Apply time range ]
And, of course, this works as expected. However, when the dashboard is reloaded, this timeframe setting is gone, to be reset by some Grafana-calculated default. I wouild have thought this setting would be saved, as Grafana also saves previous attempts.
Recently used absolute ranges 2019-01-01 00:00:00 to 2023-01-01 23:59:59 2019-01-01 00:00:00 to 2023-01-01 23:59:59 2019-01-01 00:00:00 to 2023-01-01 23:59:59 2019-01-01 00:00:00 to 2023-01-01 23:59:59
Of course, I can click on one of these, but the user would prefer to see the graph correctly straight away.
Suggestions? Is this something fixed in a newer version? Am I missing something simple?
Thanks in advance.
