Grafana Plugin Flowcharting


Flowcharting is a Grafana plugin. Use it to display complexe diagrams using the online graphing library can create many types of diagrams :

  • Technical architecture schema (Legacy, Cloud, Azure, AWS, GCP, Kubernetes, Terraform)
  • Diagrams (network, electric, flows, ...)
  • Industrial processes
  • Organic plans
  • Floorplans
  • UML plan
  • Workflows (Jenkins, Ansible Tower, OpenShift, ...)

Draw your artwork, feed it live data and define in flowcharting how the data will interact with the diagram.

  • Monitor state and performance
  • Interact with the diagram
  • Change the displayed objects based on data or state
  • Add links to objects
  • Make full use of variables to modify shapes, colours, links, download paths and more.
  • Support for regular expressions for matching and substitutions
