Grant editors team creator permissions

By default, the editor organization role does not allow editors to creator and manage teams. You can allow them to do so using the editors_can_admin configuration option.

When editors_can_admin is enabled, users with the Editor role in an organization can create teams, and they are Administrators of the teams they create. To learn more about team permissions, refer to Team management.

Before you begin

  • Ensure that you have access to the Grafana server

To enable editors with team creator permissions:

  1. Log in to the Grafana server and open the Grafana configuration file.

    For more information about the Grafana configuration file and its location, refer to Configuration.

  2. Locate the editors_can_admin parameter.

  3. Set the editors_can_admin value to true.

  4. Save your changes and restart the Grafana server.
