Reporting API

This API allows you to interact programmatically with the Reporting feature.

The Reporting API is not stabilized yet, it is still in active development and may change without prior notice.

Reporting is only available in Grafana Enterprise. Read more about Grafana Enterprise.

If you are running Grafana Enterprise, for some endpoints you’ll need to have specific permissions. Refer to Role-based access control permissions for more information.
