We share this project with the community as an example of how to create a customized Docker image with included Application plugin and provisioning.

Grafana 9.5.1

Grafana 9.5.0/9.5.1 introduced Connections as a new and easier way to install and add Data Sources. It's an interesting feature to explore various data sources, but we already know what we need and disabled it.
