Displaying the workflow execution metric counter in the form of table


My question is similar to Properly plot counters with Prometheus in Grafana but that is left unanswered, so raising a new post.

I am using java and I am trying to plot down the number of workflows executed over a given period of time in grafana. I have the metric temporal_workflow_completed_total being emitted. But the issue with it is that if I run only a single workflow, since it does not emit 0 and starts only from 1, I am not able to do an increase function over the metric.
Even if I do have multiple workflows run, increase() does not produce a whole number and I understand why it is so. Is there a way we can get the exact count of workflows run?

Please let me know if any other information is required.
