Concepts

There are basically 2 copies of your Grafana entities. One running in Grafana live currently and second stored in your local directory.

For example:

  • local dashboard - a dashboard json file under dashboards directory on local disk
  • remote dashboard - a dashboard currently live in Grafana

  • local panel - a panel json file under temp-vars directory on local disk

  • remote panel - a panel currently live one a dashboard in Grafana

Commands are available to interact with both copies of your Grafana entities.
