How to set "Public Dashboard writer"?

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

9.3.1 on RHEL 7

  • What are you trying to achieve?

  • How are you trying to achieve it?

Grants access to publish new public

  • What happened?

I didn’t find how to configure roles as in What's new in Grafana v9.2 | Grafana documentation

  • What did you expect to happen?

To find a set permissions to create/edit public dashboard

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

What's new in Grafana v9.2 | Grafana documentation

(Section Use RBAC to allow any user to share dashboards publicly)

Please could you help me to find that in Web GUI on Enterprise edition?

Thanks in advance

Hi @sebelk,

Thanks for opening this post.

The main link to documentation is at :

where it also states that to enable it need to add the following changes in the Grafana configuration file i.e.:

publicDashboards = true

Let us know if this helps. :slight_smile:

Thanks @usmanahmad
I’ve already read that documentation and edited the configuration file.
In fact, public dashboard is working, but I didn’t find how to enable this:

I only have Admin, Editor and Viewer roles.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I again checked about this feature and it says according to the page:

the “Public Dashboard writer” role if you are using RBAC in Grafana Enterprise or Grafana Cloud Advanced.

Also found here that:

By default, only admins can share dashboards publicly

which implies on the writer feature.

Can you please tell us if you are using Grafana Enterprise or Grafana Cloud Advanced or some other flavour e.g. OSS? and are using the admin account?
