Grafana Dashboard Automation
2020-02-03, 16:00–16:50, B.3.036

This talk demonstrates technologies for automating Grafana dashboard generation and deployment.


Grafana configuration can nowadays be fully done as code, which enables code review, code reuse, and in general better workflows when working with dashboards.

This talk will present Grafonnet, a Jsonnet library to generate Grafana dashboards and some tips and tricks about how to use it efficiently and how to manage fully your Grafana instances from code. We will also explore how Jsonnet and Grafonnet enable collaboration on dashboards, using Mixins and explain how to push dashboards to Grafana, either using Kubernetes, or direct to the Grafana API.
