User settings for Grafana OnCall

Grafana OnCall is configured based on the teams you’ve created on the organization level of your Grafana instance, in Configuration > Teams. Administrators can create a different configuration for each team, and can navigate between team configurations in the Select Team dropdown menu in the Incidents section of Grafana OnCall.

Users can edit their contact information, but user permissions are assigned at the Cloud portal level.

Configure user notification policies

Administrators can configure how each user will receive notifications when they are are scheduled to receive them in escalation chains. Users can verify phone numbers and email addresses.

NOTE: You cannot add users or manage permissions in Grafana OnCall. Most user settings are found on the organizational level of your Grafana instance in Configuration > Users.

  1. Find users.

    Select the Users tab and use the browser to search for a user in the team associated with the OnCall configuration.

  2. Configure user settings.

    Add and verify a phone number, a Slack username, and a Telegram account if you want to receive notifications using these mediums.

    NOTE: To edit a user’s profile username, email, or role, you must do so in the Users tab in the Configuration menu of your Grafana instance.

    Specify the notification medium and frequency for each user. Notification steps will be followed in the order they are listed.
