Google OAuth2 Authentication

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

Create Google OAuth keys

First, you need to create a Google OAuth Client:

  1. Go to https://console.developers.google.com/apis/credentials
  2. Click the ‘Create Credentials’ button, then click ‘OAuth Client ID’ in the menu that drops down
  3. Enter the following:
  4. Click Create
  5. Copy the Client ID and Client Secret from the ‘OAuth Client’ modal

Enable Google OAuth in Grafana

Specify the Client ID and Secret in the Grafana configuration file. For example:

[auth.google]
enabled = true
client_id = CLIENT_ID
client_secret = CLIENT_SECRET
scopes = https://www.googleapis.com/auth/userinfo.profile https://www.googleapis.com/auth/userinfo.email
auth_url = https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/auth
token_url = https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/token
allowed_domains = mycompany.com mycompany.org
allow_sign_up = true

Restart the Grafana back-end. You should now see a Google login button on the login page. You can now login or sign up with your Google accounts. The allowed_domains option is optional, and domains were separated by space.

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