We are coming from Developing the »grafana-metadata-api« here.
Conveniently access multiple JSON files through a single native Grafana datasource based on the Grafana Simple JSON Datasource plugin.
This can be used to implement lookup and concordance tables and consume them easily from within Grafana.
The server-side component of the Grafana Metadata API is serving as a hackable datasource implementation. Being in its infancy, it just delivers static JSON files after applying some basic routing.
It is based on the Simple JSON Datasource plugin, a backend datasource that sends generic HTTP requests to a given URL.
"grafana-metadata-api" has been installed and configured on the data acquisition host
weather.hiveeyes.org by following the corresponding setup documentation.
The new data source
"environmental-metadata" has been added to pull this into Grafana.
Name: environmental-metadata Type: SimpleJson URL: https://weather.hiveeyes.org/metadata Access: proxy
