GitHub OAuth2 Authentication

To enable the GitHub OAuth2 you must register your application with GitHub. GitHub will generate a client ID and secret key for you to use.

Configure GitHub OAuth application

You need to create a GitHub OAuth application (you find this under the GitHub settings page). When you create the application you will need to specify a callback URL. Specify this as callback:

http://<my_grafana_server_name_or_ip>:<grafana_server_port>/login/github

This callback URL must match the full HTTP address that you use in your browser to access Grafana, but with the prefix path of /login/github. When the GitHub OAuth application is created you will get a Client ID and a Client Secret. Specify these in the Grafana configuration file. For example:

Enable GitHub in Grafana

[auth.github]
enabled = true
allow_sign_up = true
client_id = YOUR_GITHUB_APP_CLIENT_ID
client_secret = YOUR_GITHUB_APP_CLIENT_SECRET
scopes = user:email,read:org
auth_url = https://github.com/login/oauth/authorize
token_url = https://github.com/login/oauth/access_token
api_url = https://api.github.com/user
team_ids =
allowed_organizations =

Restart the Grafana back-end. You should now see a GitHub login button on the login page. You can now login or sign up with your GitHub accounts.

You may allow users to sign-up via GitHub authentication by setting the allow_sign_up option to true. When this option is set to true, any user successfully authenticating via GitHub authentication will be automatically signed up.

team_ids

Require an active team membership for at least one of the given teams on GitHub. If the authenticated user isn’t a member of at least one of the teams they will not be able to register or authenticate with your Grafana instance. For example:

[auth.github]
enabled = true
client_id = YOUR_GITHUB_APP_CLIENT_ID
client_secret = YOUR_GITHUB_APP_CLIENT_SECRET
scopes = user:email,read:org
team_ids = 150,300
auth_url = https://github.com/login/oauth/authorize
token_url = https://github.com/login/oauth/access_token
api_url = https://api.github.com/user
allow_sign_up = true

allowed_organizations

Require an active organization membership for at least one of the given organizations on GitHub. If the authenticated user isn’t a member of at least one of the organizations they will not be able to register or authenticate with your Grafana instance. For example

[auth.github]
enabled = true
client_id = YOUR_GITHUB_APP_CLIENT_ID
client_secret = YOUR_GITHUB_APP_CLIENT_SECRET
scopes = user:email,read:org
auth_url = https://github.com/login/oauth/authorize
token_url = https://github.com/login/oauth/access_token
api_url = https://api.github.com/user
allow_sign_up = true
# space-delimited organization names
