Use the Grafana Flux Data Source plugin to connect Grafana to InfluxDB 2.0 or InfluxDB Cloud 2.0.

The Grafana Flux Data Source plugin is currently in beta.

  1. Sign up for InfluxDB Cloud 2.0 or Start InfluxDB 2.0 OSS.
  2. Download and install Grafana.
  3. Install the Grafana Flux Data Source plugin manually or with grafana-cli (installed with Grafana).

    grafana-cli plugins install grafana-influxdb-flux-datasource
