    Grafana adds a threshold value and color.

  4. Accept the recommendations or edit the threshold.

    • Edit color: To select a color, click the color dot.
    • Edit number: To change the threshold value, click in the field and enter a number.
  5. Select a Threshold mode. Threshold mode applies to all thresholds on this panel.

  6. In the Show thresholds drop-down, select a threshold display option.

  7. Click Save.
