Grafana Plugins catalog

The plugin was updated in the Grafana Plugins catalog on June 15, 2023.

Changes in Grafana 10

Some data sources in Grafana 10 return field values as values instead of values.buffer as in Grafana 9 and prior versions.

We updated the function example to work in Grafana 9 and Grafana 10:

const sData =
s.fields.find((f) => f.type === "number").values.buffer ||
s.fields.find((f) => f.type === "number").values;
const sTime =
s.fields.find((f) => f.type === "time").values.buffer ||
s.fields.find((f) => f.type === "time").values;

You can remove the || statement and choose the correct expression for your Grafana version.

Custom Themes

We added an alert for theme parsing errors. It may be difficult to identify JSON errors when applying a modified theme until all issues are resolved.

A new alert makes the troubleshooting process simpler and more effective.

Business Charts Panel supports custom themes from Theme Builder.
