Help with Statusmap plugin (data from Influx)


I am having issues getting the Statusmap plugin to display any data. Was wondering if anyone who has gotten this plugin to work from influx could please provide some queries or screen shots to help me figure out where I went wrong.

We are using Grafana 6.7.3 with Influx 1.8.0.

I have been able to use query inspector to validate the query and the data it returns. Nothing is being plotted on the statusmap. Data is present as I am not getting the “No data points” message. I am not sure what format the plugin is expecting the data from influx.

Some basic questions I have are:
Does the status need to be a tag or a field from infux (or maybe both).
Does the data need to be grouped in a special way for the plugin to read the data
