Use variables in any panels threshold

Good morning everyone!

I recently started working with grafana and it has been an absolute blast so far!
However, I want to create a dynamic dashboard that uses values from a SQL server as the thresholds for panels. For example: a gauge with a value from a SQL database, and a max threshold also taken from a SQL database, so that $variablename or something like that can be used.

Now I realise that this question has been asked multiple times before. Really often actually. So this topic merely serves as a way to reach out to the developers to receive a little more information about it and if it will ever be added. Since the next topic on github posed the exact same question in 2014!! Yet no further information was provided other than developers reacting on other issues “this is a duplicate” (which will probably happen to this one as well…)

Best regards,
