cURL examples

This page provides examples of calls to the Grafana API using cURL.

The most basic example for a dashboard for which there is no authentication. You can test the following on your local machine, assuming a default installation and anonymous access enabled, required:

curl http://admin:admin@localhost:3000/api/search
