Change Grafana UI theme

In Grafana, you can modify the UI theme configured in the Settings or Preferences. Set the UI theme for the server, an organization, a team, or your personal user account using the instructions in this topic.

Some tasks require certain permissions. For more information about roles, refer to Permissions .

Theme options

The theme affects how Grafana displays graphs, menus, other UI elements.

Default

Default is either the dark theme or the theme selected in a higher level. For example, if an Organization administrator set the Light theme, then that is the default for all the teams in that organization.
