Logging on to Grafana

This page describes the credentials needed to log on to Grafana for secure and nonsecure clusters for MapR 6.0 and later.

MEP 5.0.0 and MapR Installer 1.9.0 implemented some changes in security that affect the user IDs and passwords you need to log on to Grafana. Beginning with MEP 5.0.0, Grafana no longer uses its own database to authenticate on secure MapR clusters. On secure clusters, when you enter your user name and password into the browser, the Grafana server sends the user name and password to the CLDB, and the CLDB authenticates using the Pluggable Authentication Modeul (PAM) and HTTPS. Grafana still relies on its database for some user information. However, because authentication relies on the CLDB, any new user that you add to Grafana must also exist on the MapR cluster.

MEP 4.x.x (Grafana 4.4.2) and Earlier

To log on, enter the default Grafana admin user and password:
  • User: admin
  • Password: admin

MEP 5.x.x (Grafana 4.6.1) and Later

To log on, specify the user and password as follows:
Secure Cluster Nonsecure Cluster
User Type the MapR cluster admin user ID.
Note: If the cluster admin user has no password or is not able to log in, see Logging on to Grafana Without Using the Cluster Admin.
Type the Grafana admin user ID.
Password Type the MapR cluster admin password that you specified during cluster installation. Type the password for the Grafana admin user that you specified during cluster installation. (During cluster installation, the MapR Installer web interface asks you to provide this password. You can also provide the password by using configure.sh during a manual installation.)
