Grafana - Escaping characters in a flux field

In Grafana how do I deal with a flux field that has a # in its name? How do you escape things?

|> filter(fn: (r) => r["_field"] == "#_Active_session")

When you say Deal with what do you mean? AFAIK ‘#’ isnt a special charecter from a grafana UI POV

this should suffice :grinning:

‘#’ means bookmark :slightly_smiling_face:

Yeah. I don’t think that # shoudl be a special character but nothing comes through and I’m not sure why. # isn’t special to influxdb, anyway, but, the exact same data shows up on the influxdb explorer / chronograf. So something is choking and I"m 90% sure it’s grafana. I’ll try to prove it today.

It’s in the request for sure.

I know this because I chagned the query to use a regex without the # … and then it started working

|> filter(fn: (r) => r["_field"] =~ /_Active_session/)

So the problem is in the request path somehow
