DevelopersHTTP APIService account HTTP API

Service account API

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.

Search service accounts with Paging

GET /api/serviceaccounts/search?perpage=10&page=1&query=myserviceaccount

Required permissions

See note in the introduction for an explanation.

Action Scope
serviceaccounts:read global:serviceaccounts:*

Example Request:

GET /api/serviceaccounts/search?perpage=10&page=1&query=mygraf HTTP/1.1
Accept: application/json
Content-Type: application/json
Authorization: Basic YWRtaW46YWRtaW4=

Default value for the perpage parameter is 1000 and for the page parameter is 1. The totalCount field in the response can be used for pagination of the user list E.g. if totalCount is equal to 100 users and the perpage parameter is set to 10 then there are 10 pages of users. The query parameter is optional and it will return results where the query value is contained in one of the name. Query values with spaces need to be URL encoded e.g. query=Jane%20Doe.

HTTP/1.1 200
