MySQL collector has been installed, but cannot add the relevant charts to a custom Dashboard

I just installed the MySQL collector on the ‘database’ node, and I’m seeing those graphs in the Overview page, but cannot add them on a custom dashboard.

It’s been at least 10 minutes with no change. In my dashboard, I click “Add Chart”, choose my node (‘database’) and do a search for ‘mysql’, and get nothing related to the MySQL collector

So this is possibly a bug with the specific view and how the list of contexts is populated. We’ll need to try and replicate, so we can resolve it.

The workaround is to add the charts as you see them. I wouldn’t add one chart for each node myself, but rather the overview charts, displayed “by Node” instead of “by Dimension” (i.e. one series per node).
