Configure 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 hosted_domain = mycompany.com use_pkce = 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.
You may specify a domain to be passed as
hd query parameter accepted by Google’s
OAuth 2.0 authentication API. Refer to Google’s OAuth documentation.
You can disable PKCE in Grafana by setting
Configure refresh token
Available in Grafana v9.3 and later versions.
Note: This feature is behind the
When a user logs in using an OAuth provider, Grafana verifies that the access token has not expired. When an access token expires, Grafana uses the provided refresh token (if any exists) to obtain a new access token.
Grafana uses a refresh token to obtain a new access token without requiring the user to log in again. If a refresh token doesn’t exist, Grafana logs the user out of the system after the access token has expired.
By default, Grafana includes the
access_type=offline parameter in the authorization request to request a refresh token.
