Grafana Enterprise Traces

Grafana Enterprise Traces (GET) is a commercial offering based on the open-source project Tempo. The commercial offering allows you to deploy a highly-scalable, simple, and reliable traces cluster in your own data center. The plugin gives you an easy way to manage your traces cluster.


  • Tenant management: Easily scale up to hundreds of GET tenants on a single cluster.
  • Access policies and tokens: Fully control and visualise who has access to what.


After the plugin has been installed into your Grafana instance, enable and initialize it:

  1. Navigate to Configuration > Plugins within your Grafana instance.
  2. Select the Grafana Enterprise Traces app from the list.
  3. Click the Enable plugin button on the plugin page to enable the plugin.
  4. Fill out the API settings section with the GET bootstrap token and a URL where the cluster can be accessed.
  5. Start using the GET plugin.
