    Timestream Datasource

    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

    1. In the side menu under the Configuration link, click on Data Sources.
    2. Click the Add data source button.
    3. Select Timestream in the Time series databases section.

    Authentication

    The Timestream plugin authentication system matches the standard Cloudwatch plugin system. See the grafana documentation for authentication options and setup.

    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.

    Query editor

    The query editor accepts timestream syntax in addition to the macros listed above and any dashboard template variables.

    Macros

    To simplify syntax and to allow for dynamic parts, like date range filters, the query can contain macros.

    $__databaseWill specify the selected database. This may use the default from the datasource config, or the explicit value from the query editor.
    $__tableWill specify the selected database. This may use the default from the datasource config, or the explicit value from the query editor.
    $__measureWill specify the selected measure. This may use the default from the datasource config, or the explicit value from the query editor.
