Create QA dashboards with Grafana (Part 5)

In the last tutorial of this series, we create the dashboards for testing and support. Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4 should have been successfully completed.

Dashboard Testing

First, I show the result. With a little Drag & Drop and resizing, your dashboard might look like this. But after all, it’s up to your creativity how the results look.

Final Dashboard Testing

I will just show now the most important configurations, from the 4th part you should already know the others.

Add following panels. 1x Graph panel, 2x Singlestat panel and 1x Pie Chart panel. Now edit the Graph panel.

Under tab General enter for Title: Results: $Testers. On tab Metrics select Data Source InfluxDB_test_db and enter From: default suite WHERE: qa =~ /^$Testers$/, SELECT: field(passed) alias(Test Passed) field(skipped) alias(Tests Skipped) field(failed) alias(Tests Failed), FORMAT AS: Time series and ALIAS BY: $col.

Testing Graph Metrics

For tab Axes just enable Show checkbox on Left Y and X-Axis, Unit: short, Scale: linear and Mode: Time. On tab Legend enable checkboxes Show, As Table, Min, Max and Current. On tab Display enable only checkbox Lines.

Now you can edit the Singlestat panels (one after the other). Here the important screens for Passed Total: $Testers:

Testing Singlestat Options

For Singlestat Failed Total: $Testers, just change field(passed) to field(failed).

The Pie Chart Average: $Testers is simple, too. Here are the most important settings.

You’re done with 2nd dashboard. Don’t forget to save (incl. variables and so on)!

Dashboard Support

Let’s get to the last dashboard (Support). Again, the result.

Final Dashboard Support

Now add the following panels. 1x Graph panel and 1x Pie Chart panel (we dynamically generate the others).

Here now the important settings. On tab General have attentions to Repeat!
