Grafana has a concept of Organizations & Users, and can be managed through the Grafana UI. You can create new orgs, assign user to orgs, give users viewer/editor/admin privileges.

Check out the Grafana Admin option in the left pane.

@Aravindan Vijayan -

Thanks, i was able to create the organizations & assign users to the organization.

Is there a way of sharing (i mean providing access to existing graphs & data sources) the Data Sources & Dashboards/Graph between organizations or users ?

Currently, i'm unable to VIEW existing Data Sources & Graphs created when logged in as Main Org, when i'm logged in as user belonging to different organization created (eg. new Organization created - GDCS)

How do we do this sharing ? Pls. let me know.

Within an organization, dashboards are already shared. The privileges can be managed through http://<Grafana_host>:3000/org/users if you are logged in as an admin user.

As far as I know, in the Grafana version that ships with Ambari, a dashboard belongs to an organization, and cannot be shared across orgs. You can workaround this by setting the organization to the desired one from the Grafana UI, and then restarting Grafana through Ambari. It will create the datasource & dashboards for the current org.
