Amazon Managed Grafana now supports a new API for creating Grafana API tokens, as well as support for new plugins, Grafana version 8.4, and workspace tags. With CreateWorkspaceApiKey, customers can create Grafana API tokens without having to log into the Grafana workspace console, enabling users to programmatically create, delete, and manage Grafana resources such as dashboards, alerts, and data sources. Amazon Managed Grafana adds support for Github, Moogsoft, Pixie, and Windrose plugins, enabling customers to connect, query, and visualize data from additional data sources. Existing and new Amazon Managed Grafana workspaces now support Grafana version 8.4, with no action required from users. Customers can now tag Amazon Managed Grafana workspaces to help simplify organization and cost management of workspaces. Tags are labels in the form of key-value pairs that may be attached to Amazon Managed Grafana workspaces to search, filter, or allocate costs.
