I’m trying to setup alerting by having Grafana send emails through the Gmail SMTP.
I run Grafana in docker so I setup SMTP using in a dockerfile:
- GF_SMTP_ENABLED=true - GF_SMTP_HOST=smtp.gmail.com:587 - GF_SMTP_USER=My_account@gmail.com - GF_SMTP_PASSWORD="""My_Password""" - GF_SMTP_SKIP_VERIFY=false - GF_SMTP_FROM_NAME=grafana - GF_SMTP_FROM_ADDRESS=My_account@gmail.com
I’m getting the following error:
535 5.7.8 Username and Password not accepted
I have tried many solutions found in these forums but none seems to work.
I know Gmail use to have a setting " Less secure app access" but you can’t use it anymore.
Is it still viable to use Gmail in Grafana without this setting?
If it is, how?
