To access the Grafana Incident JSON/HTTP RPC API, you will need to create a Service Account and a Service account token from the Administration section in the sidebar.
Learn more about Service accounts and tokens in the Administration documentation.
Get a service account token
An Admin user can generate a service account token through the Grafana web interface:
- Create a dedicated Service account for API access. It is recommended that you create a service account for each application.
- Give it the
Editorrole, so it is able to take action.
- Add a token to the service account so the API can act on behalf of that account.
- Copy the token to your clipboard, and use it when making API calls.
Use the service account token
You will need to make HTTP requests with the following header:
Authorization: Bearer glsa_HOruNAb7SOiCdshU9algkrq7F...
If you’re using one of the official client libraries, you will likely provide this programmatically through environment variables or a secret manager.
