Grafana Cloud

Provision Synthetic Monitoring resources

The Grafana Terraform provider has support for managing Synthetic Monitoring checks and probes. If you already have checks or probes created via the UI, you can export an initial Terraform configuration from the Config tab of the Synthetic monitoring plugin.


You need a Synthetic Monitoring access token to use the Grafana Terraform provider to manage resources.

You can get an access token by navigating to the Config tab of the Synthetic Monitoring plugin or via the API.

Synthetic Monitoring access tokens don’t have an expiration date.

Alternatively, you can use Grizzly, a command-line tool, to manage your synthetic monitoring resources in code.

Another option is the Synthetic Monitoring API, ideal for those who prefer not to use Terraform or Grizzly but still want to manage their Synthetic Monitoring checks programmatically.
