Using Grafana as configuration utility

Hello All,

I’m new too Grafana, so please excuse in the first place :slight_smile:

Is it possible to use Grafana as configuration utility?
I’ll try to explain…
Lets say we have a database with some numeric values. These values are configurations for behavior of our sever.
Is it possible to show these numeric values in “nice” way, and change them using some dashboard in Grafana?

Lets say something similar to numericupdown for numbers:
or rangeslider

Thanks in advance :slight_smile:

You might be able to find a way to do this, by manually putting “update”
commands into your database queries (although I’m not sure how you’d get the
values you want to update into Grafana to start with), however overall this
suggestion feels like squashing a square peg into a triangular hole to me.

Grafana really isn’t the right tool for this job - it’s meant to fetch data
from a data store and display it, not modify what’s in the data store.


Thanks Antony,

This is what i assumed, but on the other hand i saw these:

so are these tools made only for configuring the plugins?
