Vertica + grafana 7.5.4

Hi All!
After upgrading my grafana to 7.5.4 and importing my dashboard I have error:
"query must have at least one column with name 'text' field: name grafana"
The issue is happening when trying to create a new dashboard with a new variable also.
Did anyone came across this issue?
many thanks!

    I do some basic functional and regression tests against a handful of dashboards and haven't seen anything. I am currently set up with Vertica 10.1 and have just tested today with the newest Grafana 7.5.5-1. I see you logged this with Grafana today as well. Is this specifically with the Vertica plugin or do you see this with others? If you send step by step for the new dash creation I may be able to debug it, or at least determine if it's on the plugin side or the Grafana side.

  • I found the problem.I changed the plugin to 0.1 (I believe the older one )
    The problem was that the plugin to use for the vertica grafana is 0.1 and not the 1.0.5 version .
    when I use plugin 1.0.5 called "vertica datasource" and not "vertica" 0.1 the above error is occurring.
    you can try to reproduce ?
    Is there a way to control the connection pools through that datasource ? on the 1.0.5 there is , but on the 0.1 no settings for that.
    Many thanks!
