Which do I update first Plugins, Datasource or Server?


I currently use Grafana with the Zabbix Plugin to monitor our infrastructure and due some internal issues, we have fallen behind somewhat on our versions. Assuming I’ll probably have to update my Zabbix server first to begin with, when the time comes to update Grafana, is there any particular order in which the updates should take place between the Panel Plugins, Datascource (Zabbix) Plugin and the Grafana Server?

Thank you in advance for your help!

My recommendation would be to shut down the old grafana-server, back up the database, update grafana but don’t start the new server, use the new grafana-cli to update the plugins, then start the updated server.
