Connect to Grafana

Connect to Grafana

To access Grafana, use the public IP exposed by the proxy node, the default 8084 port, and the HTTPS protocol.

To connect to Grafana:

  1. Log in to the Salt Master node.

  2. Obtain the Grafana hostname (IP address), port, and protocol to use as a URL:

    salt -C 'I@horizon:server' pillar.item nginx:server:site:nginx_proxy_grafana:host
    

    Example of system response:

    prx01.stacklight-dev-2019-2-9.local:
        ----------
        nginx:server:site:nginx_proxy_grafana:host:
            ----------
            name:
                10.13.0.80
            port:
                8084
            protocol:
                https
    
  3. Obtain the Grafana administrator password:

    salt -C 'I@grafana:client and I@docker:swarm:role:master' pillar.item docker:client:stack:dashboard:service:grafana:environment:GF_SECURITY_ADMIN_PASSWORD
    

    Example of system response:

    mon01.stacklight-dev-2019-2-9.local:
        ----------
        docker:client:stack:dashboard:service:grafana:environment:GF_SECURITY_ADMIN_PASSWORD:
            Z06IsBRBY4h67PCczp24vERqh7fGY3dm
    
  4. Enter the URL obtained in the step 2 to a web browser.

  5. Log in to the Grafana web UI using the default admin user name and the password obtained in the step 3.
