Install Grafana plugins
Grafana supports data source, panel, and app plugins. Having panels as plugins makes it easy to create and add any kind of panel, to show your data, or improve your favorite dashboards. Apps enable the bundling of data sources, panels, dashboards, and Grafana pages into a cohesive experience.
- In a web browser, navigate to the official Grafana Plugins page and find a plugin that you want to install.
- Click the plugin, and then click the Installation tab.
- In the For field, select the organization that contains the Grafana instance you want to install the plugin on.
Install plugin on Hosted Grafana
On the Installation tab, click the name of the Hosted Grafana instance that you want to install the plugin on.
Grafana handles the plugin installation automatically.
Install plugin on local Grafana
Follow the instructions on the Install tab. You can either install the plugin with a Grafana CLI command or by downloading a .zip file into the Grafana plugins directory. We recommend using Grafana CLI in most instances. The .zip option is available if your Grafana server does not have access to the internet.
For more information about Grafana CLI plugin commands, refer to Plugin commands.
