Generic account / read only user / password access

Hi everybody,
I’m looking for a possibility to create a dashboard which is read-only but with a generic access.
I can fand several approaches but none of them are really fulfilling what I need:

  • read-only user: User can change emailadress and password. This is no possibility as I want to create a generic account for a group of people. Can I prevent those changes?
  • public anonymous access: No possibility either, as I don’t want my Grafana instance public. Theoretically I could implement a basic authentication at the Apache proxy I’m using, but I’d prefer a built-in possibility.

Does somebody have an idea if there is a built in option to achieve what I want? Or should I go for the mentioned workaround?


yes please go for the workaround. thank you!
