Usigned plugin is not showing in GUI - Plugins


I tried to enabled an unsigned plugin so I’m able to install it in the gui.
I’m with Grafana 8.2.2 on a Debian 11 bullseye server.
The Plugin it is about is check_mk as a datasource.

Since grafana 8.0 it is nesseccary to enable unsigned plugins.

I’ve done this by adding the plugin name in the grafana.ini behind allow_loading_unsigned_plugins
so this point of grafana.ini locks now like this ;allow_loading_unsigned_plugins = checkmk-datasource
The plugin I’ve installed by following command
cd /var/lib/grafana/plugins/ && git clone
like it’s described here

everything seems fine but the plugin is not showing in the gui.

Any idea what’s maybe wrong in that way?

best regards


as your message above:
;allow_loading_unsigned_plugins = checkmk-datasource

Please remove the character ";" so the config like below:
allow_loading_unsigned_plugins = checkmk-datasource

Then restart the grafana…
