What Grafana version and what operating system are you using?
grafana-9.1.6 and influxdb-1.8.10 on ClearOS7 (binary compatible with Centos7).
What are you trying to achieve?
Set up the TIG stack as a complete newbe.
How are you trying to achieve it?
Following various guides for Centos7
Basic installation of Grafana, InfluxDB and Telegraf on CentOS 7 – PetersPlanet.nl
and other link which I can provide but can’t post in my first post as a new user.
Using yum to install all components from the source repos so I mixed and matched from the various references…
What did you expect to happen?
When I added the InfludDB data source, I expected it to work when I hit “Save and test”
Can you copy/paste the configuration(s) that you are having problems with?
Very basic database name, database user and database password.
Did you receive any errors in the Grafana UI or in related logs? If so, please tell us exactly what they were.
In the UI:

In the logs:

- Did you follow any online instructions? If so, what is the URL?
I then bumped into this thread which is for a slightly earlier version of Grafana 9.1.x, and I tried its suggestion of downgrading to grafana-9.0.8 and it worked immediately and the “Save and test” button worked.
Is there something different needed in 9.1.x or is it a known bug or does a bug need to be filed.
