WITHIN dashboard quick jump to specified panel(s)

  • What Grafana version and what operating system are you using?
    Grafana 8.0 free

  • What are you trying to achieve?
    Recreate a previously working feature whereby a text panel was used to have “quick links” that jumped to a specified panel ID within the same dashboard. For various reasons we have dashboards with a lot of panels and it was helpful to have this navigation whereby the user could jump down to required part of the dashboard rather than scrolling all the way down

  • How are you trying to achieve it?
    The previous working set up used the text panel and the panel ID as follows. A text panel with some description of the section that is visible to the user (e.g displays a menu) and a corresponding href to the panel id which would allow the browswer to jump further down within the same dahsboard depending on user selection href="#panel-137"

  • What happened?
    It seems in upgrade from Grafana 6 to 8 there has been a change in terms of how the panel id is referenced (as seen from webpage inspection in the browser - see next comment below)

I have tried using href="#137"and href="#data-panelid137" but no luck.

I am wondering if anyone used Grafana in a similar way and knows a solution?


Example of panel id reference in Grafana 8. Unsure how to link this to the href to get the desired result
