Generated API key cannot be used in basic auth

  • What Grafana version and what operating system are you using?

grafana 6.4; debian os

  • What are you trying to achieve?

I tried to search users via http api.

  • How are you trying to achieve it?
  1. I generated an API key as Admin role
  2. I sent a http request:
GET /api/users?perpage=10&page=1

and use the api key in basic auth: username is api_key, password is the key itself.

  • What happened?

response is { "message": "Permission denied" }

  • What did you expect to happen?

It should work and return the users.

  • Can you copy/paste the configuration(s) that you are having problems with?

  • Did you receive any errors in the Grafana UI or in related logs? If so, please tell us exactly what they were.

  • Did you follow any online instructions? If so, what is the URL?
