The Grafana image is also hosted on Docker Hub as cognite/grafana-cdf or cognite/grafana-cdf-dev and bundled with a Cognite Data Source. You may use it for development and testing purposes only.

To run it, first create a Docker volume to store your dashboards and settings.

docker volume create grafana-storage

Run the Docker image using this volume:

docker run -d --name grafana -p 3000:3000 -v grafana-storage:/var/lib/grafana cognite/grafana-cdf

Now you can access Grafana at http://localhost:3000

Standard username/password for logging in is admin/admin. See for configuration details.
