Custom Authentication Backend

Hi All,

Is there a methodology for developing a plugin that enables the use of a custom authentication backend?

Lets’s say I aleady have infrastructure in place and I just want to replace the front end. The Auth Proxy methodology doesn’t quite make sense to me for this application. I’m still open to it if I’m wrong.

Please advise if this is possible!

I would use Open ID Connect - build OIDC IDP on top of your current infrastructure. Then you can use it not only in Grafana, but everywhere where OIDC protocol is supported.

Hi @jangaraj,

Thank you for your feedback. While I am open to these methods, we would like to rule out using our platform as a auth and data backend. The reason for this is that we would be required to pay out vendors an expensive fee for alterations.
