Chronograf annotations api

I am trying to make use of the new annotations feature in influx (Chronograf Adds Annotations, Smarter Dashboard Loading, Improved TICKscript Support, and More | InfluxData). Specifically I’m trying to find if there is any documentation about an api to add annotations programatically not using the chronograf web ui.

I’ve poked around the github issue (, reviewed the documentation at InfluxDB HTTP API reference | InfluxDB OSS 1.5 Documentation and tried to capture the api call that chronograf makes using browser debug tools but haven’t found anything.

Can anyone point me to some documentation?

Hi Michael,

Thanks for reaching out and alerting us to this! As the release of this feature is so new, we are still working on the official documentation for this process, but we will make it a priority to get the docs updated and available as soon as possible.

I will let you know as soon as they are ready to go!

Thank you.

More than half year later and still no word on this?!?!?

Can you simply write here how to add annotations to chronograph programmatically !

Have there been any developments on this?
