Plugin catalog

The Plugin catalog allows you to browse and manage plugins from within Grafana. Only Grafana server administrators and organization administrators can access and use the plugin catalog. The following access rules apply depending on the user role:

Org Admin Server Admin Permissions
  • Can configure app plugins
  • Can install/uninstall/update plugins
×
  • Can configure app plugins
  • Cannot install/uninstall/update plugins
×
  • Cannot configure app plugins
  • Can install/uninstall/update plugins

Note: The Plugin catalog is designed to work with a single Grafana server instance only. Support for Grafana clusters will be added in future Grafana releases.

Before you can use the Plugin catalog, you must enable it in the Grafana configuration file. Before following the steps below, make sure you are logged in as a Grafana administrator.

Currently, there are two entry points to the Plugin catalog.
