GraphQL Data Source

Grafana datasource plugin that provides access to a GraphQL API for numerical timeseries data, general/tabular data, and annotations.

  • The GraphQL query must be structured so that the data of interest is returned under the configurable data path (default data) in the response. If the object at that path is an array it will be iterated over, with each object added as a row in the data frame, otherwise the result object will be the only row.
    • Can be separated by commas to use multiple data paths
  • Timeseries data requires a field named Time containing the timestamp in a format that can be parsed by moment() (e.g. ISO8601).
  • Nested types will be flattened into dot-delimited fields.
  • Grafana variables should be substituted directly in the query (instead of using GraphQL variables). The dashboard time ranges are available in the global variables $__from and $__to as millisecond epoch (or in whatever format is needed by the API in Grafana 7.1.2 or later).
  • Group by can be used to group elements into multiple data points.
  • Alias by is used to alter the name of the field displayed in the legend. $field_<field.name> is substituted with the values of the field and $fieldName is substituted with the name of the field.

Examples

Below are some example queries demonstrating how to use the plugin. See the project wiki for further examples and tutorials.

Basic timeseries

query {
    submissions(user:"$user", from:"$__from", to:"$__to"){
        Time:submitTime
        idle running completed
    }
}
  • Data path: submissions

Note the use of the global $__from and $__to variables to insert the dashboard time range into the query, alongside a dashboard variable $user.

Alias and group by

query {
    data:queryAll(from:"$__from", to:"$__to", sourceId:"default") {
        batteryVoltage {
            Time:dateMillis
            packet {
                batteryVoltage
                identifier { representation }
                identityInfo { displayName }
            }
        }
    }
}
  • Data path: data.batteryVoltage
  • Group by: packet.identifier.representation
  • Alias by: $field_packet.identityInfo.displayName

In the above example, "Group by" and "Alias by" are defined. "Group by" allows you to split up an array of data into multiple data points. "Alias by" is used as the name of the data point. You can make alias use text from the query or even the field name by using $field_<your.field.name> for the value of the field, or $fieldName for the name of the field. For instance, if $fieldName was used, it would be replaced by "batteryVoltage" because that's the name of the field. If $field_identityInfo.displayName was used, it would be replaced with the value of displayName. Using $fieldName can be useful if you're querying multiple numeric fields that you want displayed in your graph.

Annotations

query {
    server1:queryEvents(from: "$__from", to:"$__to", server:"server1") {
        birthdayEvent {
            Time:dateMillis
            person {
                fullName
            }
        }
    }
    server2:queryEvents(from: "$__from", to:"$__to", server:"server2") {
        birthdayEvent {
            Time:dateMillis
            person {
                fullName
            }
        }
    }
}
  • Data path: server1.birthdayEvent, server2.birthdayEvent
  • Title: Birthday yay!
  • Text: $field_person.fullName
  • Tags: tag1, tag2

The above annotation example is similar to regular queries. You must have a Time field and are able to define a data path. Similar to the last example, you can also substitute values into the title, text, and tags by using $field_<field name>. By using $field_person.fullName as the text, the text in this annotation will be the person's full name. Tags are separated by commas. The above example has two tags: "tag1" and "tag2". If a TimeEnd field is present, the annotation will be shown over a period of time. You can also separate the data path with commas to provide multiple data paths as shown with both server1 and server2.
