Installing on a local Grafana:
For local instances, plugins are installed and updated via a simple CLI command.
Plugins are not updated automatically, however you will be notified when updates are available right within your Grafana.
1Install the Panel
Use the grafana-cli tool to install Annotation Panel from the commandline:
grafana-cli plugins install novalabs-annotations-panel
The plugin will be installed into your grafana plugins directory; the default is /var/lib/grafana/plugins. More information on the cli tool.
Note: Grafana 3.0 or greater is required to install and use plugins. Download Grafana latest.
Alternatively, you can manually download the .zip file and unpack it into your grafana plugins directory.
