GET /api/query-history

Returns a list of queries in the query history that matches the search criteria. Query history search supports pagination. Use the limit parameter to control the maximum number of queries returned; the default limit is 100. You can also use the page query parameter to fetch queries from any page other than the first one.

Query parameters:

  • datasourceUid - Filter the query history for the selected data source. To perform an “AND” filtering with multiple data sources, specify the data source parameter using the following format: datasourceUid=uid1&datasourceUid=uid2.
  • searchString – Filter the query history based on the content.
  • sort - Specify the sorting order. Sorting can be time-asc or time-desc. The default is time-desc.
  • onlyStarred - Search for queries that are starred. Defaults to false.
  • page - Search supports pagination. Specify which page number to return. Use the limit parameter to specify the number of queries per page.
  • limit - Limits the number of returned query history items per page. The default is 100 queries per page.
  • from/to - Specifies time range for the query history search. The time can be either epoch timestamps in milliseconds or relative using Grafana time units. For example, now-5m.
