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

Do you mean you have to reconnect every time ? your auth cookie is been deleted ?

After logging in browser is redirecting to /login

can you provide more info.
i you arlredy connected your browser should store auth cookie

Hi alexandrearmand, please find the screenshot below, login call is giving a 200 with grafana_session cookie but after that browser isn’t redirecting to dashboards but redirecting again to login page

After logging in once if I change the url to /dashboards it works.

I’m not sure about this, could you create your own user ?
admin account have specific rules
maybe related to AWS.

@alexandrearmand Thanks for your help, it was due to autocommit being off on the mysql database behind grafana, the tokens generated weren’t getting persisted after login I guess so subsequent calls were not being authorized.
