The Timestream datasource plugin provides a support for Amazon Timestream. Add it as a data source, then you are ready to build dashboards using timestream query results
Add the data source
- In the side menu under the Configuration link, click on Data Sources.
- Click the Add data source button.
- Select Timestream in the Time series databases section.
|Name||The data source name. This is how you refer to the data source in panels and queries.|
|Auth Provider||Specify the provider to get credentials.|
|Default Region||Used in query editor to set region. (can be changed on per query basis)|
|Credentials profile name||Specify the name of the profile to use (if you use |
|Assume Role Arn||Specify the ARN of the role to assume.|
|Endpoint (optional)||If you need to specify an alternate service endpoint|
In this section we will go through the different type of authentication you can use for X-Ray data source.
Example AWS credentials
If the Auth Provider is
Credentials file, then Grafana tries to get credentials in the following order:
- Hard-code credentials
- Environment variables (
- Existing default config files
- IAM role for Amazon EC2
Refer to Configuring the AWS SDK for Go in the AWS documentation for more information.
AWS credentials file
Create a file at
~/.aws/credentials. That is the
HOME path for user running grafana-server.
Note: If the credentials file in the right place, but it is not working, then try moving your .aws file to '/usr/share/grafana/'. Make sure your credentials file has at most 0644 permissions.
Example credential file:
[default] aws_access_key_id = <your access key> aws_secret_access_key = <your access key> region = us-west-2
Once authentication is configured, click "Save and Test" to verify the service is working. Once this is configured, you can specify default values for the configuration.
The query editor accepts timestream syntax in addition to the macros listed above and any dashboard template variables.
ctrl+space to open open the IntelliSense suggestions
To simplify syntax and to allow for dynamic parts, like date range filters, the query can contain macros.
|$__database||Will specify the selected database. This may use the default from the datasource config, or the explicit value from the query editor.|
|$__table||Will specify the selected database. This may use the default from the datasource config, or the explicit value from the query editor.|
|$__measure||Will specify the selected measure. This may use the default from the datasource config, or the explicit value from the query editor.|
|$__timeFilter||Will be replaced by an expression that limits the time to the dashboard range|
|$__interval_ms||Will be replaced by a number that represents the amount of time a single pixel in the graph should cover|
See the Alerting documentation for more on Grafana alerts.
Configure the data source with provisioning
You can configure data sources using config files with Grafana's provisioning system. You can read more about how it works and all the settings you can set for data sources on the provisioning docs page.
Here are some provisioning examples for this data source.
Using a credentials file
If you are using Credentials file authentication type, then you should use a credentials file with a config like this.
apiVersion: 1 datasources: - name: Timestream type: datasource jsonData: authType: credentials defaultRegion: us-east-1
apiVersion: 1 datasources: - name: Timestream type: datasource jsonData: authType: keys defaultRegion: us-east-1 secureJsonData: accessKey: '<your access key>' secretKey: '<your secret key>'
