WHich version of grafana to use

Hello, 1) What is the version of grafana to use? 2) I have created dashboard for unix servers, windows servers, oracle databases, sqlserver databases etc. How do I create accesss control so the unix users can only see unix dashboard, windows users can only see windows dashboard, oracle dbas can only see oracle db dashboard etc? Thanks .


This is all in the docs:

https://grafana.com/docs/grafana/latest/setup-grafana/installation/ <- this will install Grafana 10, the latest and stable version

https://grafana.com/docs/grafana/latest/setup-grafana/configure-security/configure-authentication/ <- How to configure Authentication

https://grafana.com/docs/grafana/latest/administration/roles-and-permissions/#teams-and-permissions <- How to configure Teams

https://grafana.com/docs/grafana/latest/administration/user-management/manage-dashboard-permissions/#grant-folder-permissions <-How to assign teams to folders

You’ll want to configure your authentication, assign users to teams, put your dashboards into folders, then assign the teams to the folders

Keep in mind that removing the ability of teams to see what is happening on other systems that they may interact with can severely hamper troubleshooting and should probably only be done on the basis of security rather than role separation.

Thanks. I am currently using 9.1. To implement this RBAC, do i need version 10?

Life will be a lot easier if you can migrate to 10, because that’s where the docs are focused now.

If you’re stuck on 9.x for some reason (AWS, I’m looking directly at you here…), then RBAC is a think, but it’s not as well developed and I think it requires the Enterprise license

Hi, As you mentioned I upgraded to latest grafana 10. Seems all the dashboards queries which is using variables defined in the variable section of the settings is giving error. Somehow after the upgrade it is not picking up the variables. How to resolve this? Thanks.
