Prerequisites - Amazon Managed Grafana


To use the AWS managed policies for Amazon Managed Grafana, complete the following tasks before you configure the Amazon Redshift data source:

  • Tag your Amazon Redshift cluster with GrafanaDataSource: true. Otherwise, it won't be accessible.

  • Create the database credentials in one of the following mutually exclusive ways:

    • If you want to use the default mechanism (the temporary credentials options) to authenticate against the Redshift database, you must create a database user named redshift_data_api_user.

    • If you want to use the credentials from Secrets Manager, you must tag the secret with RedshiftQueryOwner: true. For more information, see Identity-based policy examples in Amazon Managed Grafanain this guide.
