Google OAuth2 Authentication
To enable Google OAuth2 you must register your application with Google. Google will generate a client ID and secret key for you to use.
Create Google OAuth keys
First, you need to create a Google OAuth Client:
- Go to https://console.developers.google.com/apis/credentials.
- Click Create Credentials, then click OAuth Client ID in the drop-down menu
- Enter the following:
- Click Create
- Copy the Client ID and Client Secret from the ‘OAuth Client’ modal
Enable Google OAuth in Grafana
Specify the Client ID and Secret in the Grafana configuration file. For example:
[auth.google] enabled = true client_id = CLIENT_ID client_secret = CLIENT_SECRET scopes = https://www.googleapis.com/auth/userinfo.profile https://www.googleapis.com/auth/userinfo.email auth_url = https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/auth token_url = https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/token allowed_domains = mycompany.com mycompany.org allow_sign_up = true
You may have to set the
root_url option of
[server] for the callback URL to be
correct. For example in case you are serving Grafana behind a proxy.
Restart the Grafana back-end. You should now see a Google login button
on the login page. You can now login or sign up with your Google
allowed_domains option is optional, and domains were separated by space.
You may allow users to sign-up via Google authentication by setting the
allow_sign_up option to
true. When this option is set to
user successfully authenticating via Google authentication will be
automatically signed up.
