Visible Annotations per panel limit 10?

Hi all,

I would like to ask your help regarding an issue I’m facing with the annotation feature.

I’m using Grafana (v4.6.1) new built in annotation feature through the HTTP API. This feature works great but
I would like to ask if it’s possible to see more than 10 annotations on a given graph ?

I know that my annotations are stored because when I delete one manually on the graph, I see another one appear that was inserted through the HTTP API. But I currently I can’t see more than 10 annotations at the same time which is not enough for me, especially when I’m looking at long periods (over 2 months).

I wasn’t able to find a parameter in settings or a topic related to this issue.
Could you please tell me if there is a way to raise this limit ?
Many thanks in advance for your feedback.

Best regards,


You need to go into dashboard settings -> Annotations -> Annotations & Alerts (Built-in) and change the Query Max limit to what you prefer.


Hi Marcus,

Thanks a lot, I didn’t see it at first but now it makes sense.
