- Updated ESLint configuration.
The plugin was updated in Grafana Catalog on July 27, 2023.
We hit the milestone of 2,500 downloads and appreciate the feedback from the community.
Status sort button
The status sort button allows filtering values in ascending and descending directions based on the status field from the data source. Status fields with variable and status values should be specified.
The minimized mode is similar to the native select and works for Query and Custom variables.
Depending on the variable options user allow to select a single or multi-value in the multi-lines element.
The variable panel allows updating dashboard variables without occupying valuable top space and placing it anywhere on the dashboard.
Input text box
We added a community-requested feature allowing input value for the Text box variables.
The input text box is supported in the table and minimized display modes. If you select the table and enable the feature, the input can be sticky and follow used when scrolling the dashboard.
The Variable panel can be installed from the Grafana Catalog or utilizing the Grafana command line tool.
For the latter, please use the following command.
grafana-cli plugins install volkovlabs-variable-panel
The Variable panel builds on top of the regular dashboard variables. It allows you to have dashboard filters in a separate panel which you can place anywhere on the dashboard.
The variable panel offers you single- and multi-variable layouts along with an advanced Tree View.
