Configure the Azure Cosmos DB data source

To install a data source, see Install Grafana plugins. For general information on adding a data source see Add a data source.

Only users with the organization administrator role can add data sources. Administrators can also configure the data source via YAML with Grafana’s provisioning system.

You will need your account endpoint and your account key. To find your account endpoint and key refer to Secure access to data in Azure Cosmos DB.
