Admin API

The admin http API does not currently work with an api token. Api Token’s are currently only linked to an organization and organization role. They cannot given the permission of server admin, only user’s can be given that permission. So in order to use these API calls you will have to use basic auth and Grafana user with Grafana admin permission.
