Okta OAuth2 authentication
Only available in Grafana v7.0+
The Okta authentication allows your Grafana users to log in by using an external Okta authorization server.
Create an Okta application
Before you can sign a user in, you need to create an Okta application from the Okta Developer Console.
Log in to the Okta portal.
Go to Admin and then select Developer Console.
Select Applications, then Add Application.
Pick Web as the platform.
Enter a name for your application (or leave the default value).
Add the Base URI of your application, such as https://grafana.example.com.
Enter values for the Login redirect URI. Use Base URI and append it with
/login/okta, for example: https://grafana.example.com/login/okta.
Click Done to finish creating the Okta application.
Enable Okta OAuth in Grafana
- Add the following to the Grafana configuration file:
[auth.okta] name = Okta enabled = true allow_sign_up = true client_id = some_id client_secret = some_secret scopes = openid profile email groups auth_url = https://<tenant-id>.okta.com/oauth2/v1/authorize token_url = https://<tenant-id>.okta.com/oauth2/v1/token api_url = https://<tenant-id>.okta.com/oauth2/v1/userinfo allowed_domains = allowed_groups = role_attribute_path =
Configure allowed groups and domains
To limit access to authenticated users that are members of one or more groups, set
to a comma- or space-separated list of Okta groups.
allowed_groups = Developers, Admins
allowed_domains option limits access to the users belonging to the specific domains. Domains should be separated by space or comma.
allowed_domains = mycompany.com mycompany.org
Grafana can attempt to do role mapping through Okta OAuth. In order to achieve this, Grafana checks for the presence of a role using the
JMESPath specified via the
role_attribute_path configuration option.
Grafana uses JSON obtained from querying the
/userinfo endpoint for the path lookup. The result after evaluating the
role_attribute_path JMESPath expression needs to be a valid Grafana role, i.e.
Admin. Refer to
Organization roles for more information about roles and permissions in Grafana.
Team Sync (Enterprise only)
Map your Okta groups to teams in Grafana so that your users will automatically be added to the correct teams.
Okta groups can be referenced by group name, like

Grafana Enterprise plugins are integrations with other commercial monitoring tools (such as Datadog, Splunk, New Relic, ServiceNow, Oracle, and Dynatrace) that are created, maintained, and supported by the Grafana Labs team.
