Access to create dashboards

Dear All,

I need access to create dashboards. Could anyone please guide me on how to do this?

Best Regards

Hey @shabs,

Do you have a specific dashboard you want to create? I mean for a specific satellite?

Are you part of a satellite or research team? I’m asking as usually we create a team in grafana to handle easier all the permissions for the whole team.

Hi @fredy ,

Thank you very much for the reply.
There is not a specific dashboard I want to create or any specific satellite. I just want to participate in discussions and practise my telemetry and graphs analysis skills with telemetry dashboards.

Best Regards

@shabs have you need to login at least once in the dashboards site in order to give editor permissions.

Please do and let me know.

Hi @fredy ,

Thanks for your reply. I signed in. But I don’t currently have any available features to create new dashboards.

Best Regards

@shabs you should be able to create dashboards now in the scratchpad category. You can also copy an existing dashboard if you want.

Keep us updated with the work you are going to do in the dashboards :wink:

Hi @fredy . Thank you very much!
I am new to working with grafana, so just a question before I start. Where can I learn the creation of dashboards on satnogs - in terms of how to choose the subsystem and instrument I want to analyze, what source of data I have to choose to get the data to my dashboard and so on?

Best Regards

I also want to create a dashboard.
I created an account and logged in, but it is set to “Viewer.”

Best Regards

@shabs I think the best way to start is to explore the dashboards that are available in the scratchpad category, as editor you can check how each panel is build. In order to avoid messing up any of these dashboard, you can create a copy, name it properly, like “shabs experiments” and experiment. If I’m not mistaken you can also copy individual panels from each dashboard.

Have in mind that there isn’t a common ground on the nature of data that are decoded from the satellites, and no common naming in most cases. Currently in order to find the available fields of each satellite you can take a look either directly in its katai structure in satnogs-decoders repository or in its entry in SatNOGS DB site in the data tab in the decoder section. For better understanding you may also need to search for documentation of the telemetry for each satellite, usually in the satellite team’s page.

@moonsik you should now have access to the scratchpad category, to edit/copy/create dashboards.

@fredy Thank you very much!
