Use API to collect data used in dashboard

Hello Everyone,

I’m actually new to Grafana and have been given access to dashboard within Grafana by our supplier to view their queue of “traffic” towards us. The queue provides insight into whether the process is still running and whether items are still being processed on our side. We want find a method to retrieve the data shown in the Grafana graphs (doesn’t have to be realtime, we just want to follow the “trend” line so every 5-10 min for example), so that we can use this data for our own technical monitoring. Preferably by using the API to retrieve the Data.

I’ve read the descriptions about the API but have a feeling that its more to control Grafana in certain ways than to retrieve data from it.

Is it possible to use the API of Grafana to retrieve the data shown in the graphs and if so how?
