I had the idea of using Grafana to gather stats on our pentesting projects. I was curious to know if people here have had experience using Grafana and if they had advice on what sort of data sources to rely on for this. I could either use the Dradis API and write a wrapper API to suit Grafana’s Simple JSON Datasource. OR I could expose Dradis’ MySQL database and create a new user specifically for Grafana. The benefit of options one is that the data is already parsed and easy to work with. The problem is that I need to build a whole new API to meet Grafana’s expectations. The benefit of the second way is that it’s basically plug and play. The issue is that some of the fields in Dradis aren’t individual fields in the database. So if I wanted to know what risk a certain issue is, I would need to parse the content of that issue. Are there any alternatives that I am not seeing?
