Translating names of influxdb measurements to more readable format in query editing


We deal with projects with high volume of data sources (tens of thousands of tables/measurements) which are tree-organized. We are not able to apply compact names for the measurements in influxdb. Also use of long names would compromise write performance because it increases payloads non-deterministically. We then use integer numbers (or hashes) to name measurements in influxdb. We maintain internal mapping definitions to translate identifications to meaningful names.

Consequently this compromises user experience at query editing in grafana. We need to match right identification in the mapping definition and only then manually set alias for data source. This compromises user experience.

Is there any way to import mapping definitions into grafana to automatically see measurement aliases in query edit instead of raw measurement names? If this is not possible, what other options do we have to improve this experience?
