I’m having issues working with the HTTP API, using a service account token for authentication. Please note that other endpoints, such as /api/teams/search work just fine. See a description of my issue below. Any help would be greatly appreciated
What Grafana version and what operating system are you using?
Docker, image grafana/grafana-oss:9.3.1
What are you trying to achieve?
I want to consume the HTTP API with a service account token. Specifically, I want to look up users using the /api/users/lookup endpoint
How are you trying to achieve it?
- Create a service account, give it Admin role
- Generate token
- Perform a get request to url http://api/users/lookup?loginOrEmail=<EMAIL_THAT_IM_LOOKING_FOR>, with header Authorization: Bearer <SERVICE_ACCOUNT_TOKEN>
- What happened?
I get the following error message:
“message”: “You’ll need additional permissions to perform this action. Permissions needed: users:read”,
“title”: “Access denied”
What did you expect to happen?
Get a 2xx response with an array of 0 or more items in the body
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?
