GLPI app for Grafana


This application gets information in GLPI (Gestion Libre de Parc Informatique) thanks to the REST API added in version 9.1. You will be able to have graphs, singlestat, tables... of your data (tickets, devices, users...).


This is an example:



For the GLPI datasource, you will need:

  • the URL of the GLPI API (like
  • the App-token, you can generate and get it in GLPI in the menu Setup > General > API
  • the User token, you can generate and get it in the user account/preferences panel in GLPI (named API Token)
  • In the menu Setup > General > API, Enable Rest API and Enable login with external

GLPI Webserver

On your GLPI webserver, you need active the CORS. Documentation about CORS

Table panel

Create a new Table panel and then edit the panel. Select the GLPI datasource and add a new Query in the panel Metrics.

The configuration will require:

  • Query: do a search into GLPI and copy paste the URL here
  • Alias: the alias name of this query, it will appear in the panel
  • Timerange based on: define on which GLPI date field you will get the data. This field is used by the timerange defined in top of grafana
  • Count element: if the panel is a Table, select yes, otherwise keep to no
  • Is it a table?: to display the query result as a Table, check this option else uncheck.

When Is it a table is checked, the query result will be displayed as a table and you can define up to 6 columns to be displayed. For each column in the table, select the query result field and the name of the column.

When Is it a table is not checked, the query result is considered as a usual Grafana timeseries and it will displayed as is. See Grafana table panel for more information.

Problem with server access

If you have the message: There isn't an active API client matching your IP address in the configuration (ip, ip) where you have 2 IPs and the same, you need apply a patch into GLPI:

diff --git a/inc/api.class.php b/inc/api.class.php
