Unable to connect InfluxDB2.0 to Grafana

Hi all,

I’m new to Grafana and InfluxDB2.0 and I’m trying to connect my InfluxDB to my Grafana, however I’m facing the error: “Error reading InfluxDB”:

What am I doing wrong? I filled in the parameters like this:

Basic Auth Details → User & Password → My login credentials to the InfluxDB2.0 GUI.

InfluxDB Details → Organization → Part of the url, such as:


“296a21e66c3ab5ca” is the Organization

InfluxDB Details → Token-> Token I’ve created to read/write data.

InfluxDB Details → Default Bucket-> The ID of this bucket:


What am I missing or doing wrong? Please let me know! Thanks in advance!:slight_smile:

Hi @nielsschutte

Perhaps the most recent post on this lengthy topic will help you?


just a thing to add, @mattabrams
When you use InfluxQL and in Database you name the same as name of your data source( influx ) in your case. it doesnt work when you import a dashboard for example id :8451 dashboard to visualize system metrics.
