WideSky data plugin

We've extended Grafana to included a feature-rich data plugin for WideSky using the GraphQL API. This plug-in includes a variety of features to assist with the analytics construction, including:

  • An interactive query builder that supports:
    • Contextually aware Project Haystack filter suggestions
    • GraphQL schema introspection and helper text to provide contextually aware choices
  • Support for both time series and table panel types
  • Support for Grafana templates
  • Real-time control buttons

You will be issued with a URI and administrator level credentials. You can use the guides below to understand how to use the plugin.
