Grafana Cloud

Enable LLM features

Before you begin

To activate Grafana LLM features, you’ll only need a Grafana Cloud account, including the free tier.

Enterprise or OSS versions of Grafana can also use the LLM app, but won’t have access to the LLM provider built into Cloud. Install the Grafana LLM plugin using the standard plugin installation method for your Grafana version, and bring API authentication for LLM access from an OpenAI compatible service. You can obtain an OpenAI API key from OpenAI’s platform, or Azure OpenAI authentication from the Azure OpenAI service.

For more information, refer to the Plugin management documentation.

Enable LLM features

  1. In Grafana Cloud, click Administration > Plugins and data > Plugins in the side navigation menu.
  2. Browse or search for the LLM plugin and click to open it.
  3. On the Configuration tab, select “Enable OpenAI access via Grafana”.
  4. Click to permit Grafana Labs to share limited data with OpenAI’s API (not for training, and only to provide these features).
  5. Click Save settings.
