I’m running InfluxDB 1.2 with my software projects currently, and I thoroughly preferred using the Admin UI that was recently deprecated and soon to be removed.
While I totally understand not wanting to support an Admin UI on top of everything else, this does limit the usage to individuals who learn Chronograf or who have command line access to InfluxDB.
I really haven’t seen much chatter about it’s removal, so that led me to believe that a UI isn’t that important of a feature to most users.
That being said, my work has just adopted InfluxDB (1.2) for time-series metrics, and there is a need to retrieve data out of these databases. There are a few people working on writing an app that will retrieve data and are hard-coding HTTP API calls.
Is anyone aware of any tool that will let you either
- Make calls from a browser UI and see the response, besides configuring visuals in Chronograf?
- Auto-generate HTTP API calls based on dropdown inputs, or pre-configured measurements/points?
If there really isn’t anything, I think I’ll develop something that is similar to the Admin UI as it’s something people from my work would benefit immensely from. It’ll be Open Source of course!
Thanks for any info! I don’t want to reinvent the wheel, so I’ll contribute to something existing!
