Use URL to provide data to Dashboard

I want to create a dashboard (a gauge would be good) that displays values obtained from a URL. Is there a way to use a URL as a datasource, populate a variable from a URL, or something like that?

I know I can create a link that you can click on and follow a link, but I don’t want that. I want the data from the URL to feed that dashboard.



Please a look at the JSON plugin, your URL must provide valid JSON format for it to work :

Hope it helps.

Good Luck

Also, I would recommend this plugin JSON API plugin for Grafana | Grafana Labs. If the response is in JSON format, you can visualise it in panel of your choice (e.g. gauge).

Thanks for the suggestions. I will check those out and let you know.

I meant to come back sooner and say thanks again. The plugins were almost exactly what I was looking for. Got a couple things I’m working around, but it’s all good.


Great to hear that :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:
