"_monitoring" bucket not

Hello all,

I am trying to link to the _monitoring bucket from grafana but it does not show, is there a way to do this?
I have trawled the forum to no avail.

Any help would be greatly received

Hello @ThePeltonian,
Are you able to link to other buckets? What approach are you taking? Finally, have you tried asking in Grafana community?

Hi @Anaisdg

I can link to the user created buckets using the buckets() query, but it does not pull back the _monitoring or the _tasks system buckets.

Hello @ThePeltonian,
Thanks for your reply. I did a little digging and ran into this bug:

Are you using an all access token? That might solve your problem.

@Anaisdg once again you have come to my rescue!!!

I can thank you enough - that had been driving me a little insane, sending you a big hug >HUGS< as a massive thanks :slight_smile: :smiley:

So I am not sure if I want to use an all access token in my grafana config to get monitoring bucket data. I don’t want to give that much permission out to a front-end system. Why is the monitoring bucket so sacred? Why isn’t it included in the list if it is so integral to the alert feature?
