Write annotations to datasource other than grafana.db

Hi there all,

When we use the Grafana UI or the API to insert Annotations, then these are written to grafana.db.
How do we configure to write the annotations for example in influxdb?

Best wishes and thanks for Grafana

@allomorphy this is an interesting question. I don’t think this is possible. You can configure grafana to use an external database, but it is used for everything that grafana stores in the database:

Supported databases: Requirements | Grafana Labs

You can specify the database in the grafana configuration file with the settings here
