Grafana Cloud

If you do not have a Grafana Cloud account, you can sign up for one here.

  1. Select the Install plugin button on the k6 plugin installation page. This will automatically add the plugin to your Grafana instance.
    Installation might take up to 30 seconds.

  2. Login to your Hosted Grafana instance (go to your instances page in your profile):<yourUserName>/instances/ and the k6 plugin should appear in the sidebar menu.


  3. In order to use the plugin UI, the data source needs to be configured. Check out the section further down about configuring the data source.

Installing on a local Grafana instance

The plugin is installed using the Grafana CLI and instructions can be found on the installation page.

Restart your Grafana server after installing the plugin.

Configure the data source

Select Add from the plugin UI to add a data source and you will be taken to the data source configuration screen. This is what the configuration page looks like.


Here you will need to fill in your k6 Cloud API token, head over to your k6 cloud account and copy your API token. Paste the token into the API token field, select Save and Test to check that your Token is valid and that you have a connection to the k6 Cloud.
