Use Grafana with InfluxDB Enterprise

Use Grafana or Grafana Cloud to visualize data from your InfluxDB Enterprise v1.7 instance.

The instructions in this guide require Grafana Cloud or Grafana v7.1+. For information about using InfluxDB with other versions of Grafana, see the Grafana documentation.

  1. Set up an InfluxDB Enterprise cluster.
  2. Sign up for Grafana Cloud or download and install Grafana.
  3. Visit your Grafana Cloud user interface (UI) or, if running Grafana locally, start Grafana and visit http://localhost:3000 in your browser.
  4. In the left navigation of the Grafana UI, hover over the gear icon to expand the Configuration section. Click Data Sources.
  5. Click Add data source.
  6. Select InfluxDB from the list of available data sources.
  7. On the Data Source configuration page, enter a name for your InfluxDB data source.
  8. Under Query Language, select one of the following:

Configure Grafana to use InfluxQL

With InfluxQL selected as the query language in your InfluxDB data source settings:

  1. Under HTTP, enter the following:

    • URL: Your InfluxDB Enterprise URL or load balancer URL.

      http://localhost:8086/
      
    • Access: Server (default)

  2. Under InfluxDB Details, enter the following:

  3. Provide a Min time interval (default is 10s).

  4. Click Save & Test. Grafana attempts to connect to InfluxDB Enterprise and returns the result of the test.

Configure Grafana to use Flux

To query InfluxDB Enterprise using Flux from Grafana, upgrade to InfluxDB Enterprise 1.8.1+:
