Grafana Cloud

Grafana Ansible collection

The Grafana Ansible collection provides configuration management resources for Grafana. You can use it to manage resources such as dashboards, Cloud stacks, folders, and more.

The collection also houses the Grafana Agent Role which can be used to deploy and manage Grafana Agent across various linux machines.

For resources currently not available in the Grafana Ansible collection, you can manage those resources on Grafana Cloud programmatically by writing Ansible playbooks that use the Ansible’s builtin uri module to call the HTTP APIs to manage resources for the Grafana Cloud portal, as well as those within a stack.
