You can use Grafana Cloud managed service as a backend for Odigos to store your logs, metrics, and traces. This page describes how to configure Odigos to use Grafana Cloud Prometheus as a metrics backend.

Notice: these instructions are for the Grafan cloud managed Prometheus service. If you run a self hosted Prometheus instance, please follow the instructions in the Prometheus page.

All the connection details can be found at under My Account

Prometheus managed service configuration

Connection Settings

To send metrics to Grafana Cloud Prometheus, you need to configure the following settings:

  • Prometheus Remote Write Endpoint - This is the URL of the Prometheus service. From the grafana cloud UI, Prometheus page, make sure you copy the URL from “Remote Write Endpoint” section, and not the first Endpoint which is used for queries. This url should look like: https://{hostname} (path should be /api/prom/push)
  • Username / Instance ID - You can find the prometheus page. The username is a number.
  • Password - This field is refered to as “password” or “ API Token” in the Grafana Cloud UI. You can manage tokens in your “Account Settings” page under the “SECURITY” section in the “Access Policies” page. Make sure your token scope includes “metrics:write” scope.

Resource Attributes as Metrics Labels

To use resource attributes as labels in your data points, you can set the resource attribute names in the Resource Attributes as Labels multi-input config option in the destination page in the Odigos UI.

Cluster Static Labels

You can set static labels for each metric data pointsent exported to Grafana Cloud Prometheus from the cluster by setting the External Labels configuration with lable keys and values.
