Hiding example queries in qan

TylerTyler EntrantCurrent User Role Beginner
I'm trying to figure out how to hide example queries in qan for all hosts. I unchecked the "Send real query examples" option in the management gui but qan is still showing them.

Ideally I'd like to do this on a client-by-client basis in the config.yml this possible?

    Hi Tyler,

    as quick solution you can disable QAN for some hosts by the following command
    pmm-admin remove mysql:queries

    oh noes! I need QAN, just wanted to open it up to some developers who shouldn't be able to see production data.

    Maybe a feature request for next release.

    I created ticket for this issue:

    Anyway workaround exists:
    1. you can disable "Send real query examples" for required instance
    2. wait 1-2 minutes for reconfiguration.
    3. run the following commands on docker server
    docker exec -it pmm-server /usr/bin/mysqldump pmm query_examples > /tmp/backup-query_examples.sql
    docker exec -it pmm-server /usr/bin/mysql -e '
        FROM pmm.query_examples
        WHERE instance_id IN (
            SELECT i.instance_id
            FROM pmm.instances i
            WHERE i.subsystem_id=3
