Grafana Teams

Grafana Teams makes it easy to organize and administer groups of users in your enterprise. Teams allows you to grant permissions to a group of users instead of granting permissions to individual users one at a time.

Teams are useful in a wide variety of scenarios, such as when onboarding new colleagues or needing access to reports on secure financial data. When you add a user to a team, they get access to all resources assigned to that team.

Teams concepts

A Grafana Team is a group of users within an organization that have common permissions, including access to dashboards and data sources, and those permissions apply to all members of that team. For example, instead of assigning six users access to the same dashboard, you can create a team that consists of those users and assign dashboard permissions to the team. A user can belong to multiple teams.

A Team grants permissions to a wide variety of resources including:

  • dashboards
  • data sources
  • folders
  • alerts
  • reports
  • cloud access policies
  • annotations
  • playlists


All members of a Grafana Team have the same exact permissions. A single Team can’t have members with different access levels to resources shared within that Team.

A user can be a Member or an Administrator for a given Team. Members of a Team inherit permissions from the team, but they don’t have team administrator privileges, and can’t edit the team itself. Team Administrators can add members to a team and update its settings, such as the team name, team member’s team roles, UI preferences, and home dashboard.

There are two types of Teams, isolated or collaborative. Isolated teams can only see their own resources. They can’t see other team’s resources like dashboards, data, or alerts. Collaborative teams have access to other team’s resources.
