  2. Configuration changes allow Grafana panels to be accessible publicly as an anonymous user.
  3. Copy embed panel code from Grafana Panel. We will use this in the website’s where we want to integrate Grafana Panel.
  4. Paste the copied embed code and save the changes.
  5. Eureka ! Now when you open your website, you can see Grafana Dashboards embedded.

Make changes in /etc/grafana/grafana.ini

Below are the changes which you need to make in grafana.ini file. Make sure you remove semicolon from the beginning of each line which will be present by default in grafana.ini configuration file. This semicolon acts as comments. So any configuration starting with semicolon is comments for Grafana and Grafana will ignore these lines.

allow_embedding = true
enabled = true
org_name = <<org name>>
org_role = Viewer

    Thanks for the post.
    I tried to follow all the steps you mentioned.
    However, my IFrame comes as blank. There is nothing.

    My Grafana host is a AWS EC2 Instance.
    My Website, where I am embedding the Grafana chart is another EC2 instance.

    Please guide, what needs to be done.
