You can create interactive links for Explore visualizations to run queries related to presented data by setting up Correlations.
A correlation defines how data in one data source is used to query data in another data source. Some examples:
- an application name returned in a logs data source can be used to query metrics related to that application in a metrics data source, or
- a user name returned by an SQL data source can be used to query logs related to that particular user in a logs data source
Explore visualizations that currently support showing links based on correlations:
You can configure correlations using the Administration > Correlation page in Grafana or with provisioning.
Note: Correlations are available in Grafana 10.0+ as an opt-in beta feature. Modify the Grafana configuration file to enable the
correlationsfeature toggle to use it.
