Influx/Grafana : Getting - InfluxDB Error: retention policy not found

Hi All,

I have recently installed clean builds of both Grafana and Influxdb. I am collecting data from around 20 sensors via mosquitto/node-red into a series of tables into an Influxdb - mydb.

This is a vanilla installation with no changes made from the default installation. The data is definitely arriving and being stored in the tables. I can pull it out via a simple command line query.

When I point Grafana (Again a vanilla build) at the DB, all queries result in the error message above

I have tried adding a non-default retention policy - this has not changed the situation

Constructive advice gratefully received.
