Grafana v6 and user session / session storage


as far as I’ve understood by reading the change logs since Grafana v6 user session are now stored as cookies and thus for HA Grafana there is no longer a need to have session storage. Is my assumption correct?


Best regards,

Yes, session storage is gone, but you might still want a way to share tokens between many Grafana servers in HA.

We use a cache for this and by default Grafana’s database is used, but in HA you might want to setup memcached or redis to do this instead so you don’t overload the database with queries for these tokens.

This is where you configure the remote cache (if you need it):
