This page shows you how to reset your Grafana user’s password through the Scaleway API.

Before you start

To complete the actions presented below, you must have:

  • A Scaleway account logged into the console
  • Created an API key with sufficient IAM permissions to perform the actions described on this page
  • Installed curl

Open a terminal and paste the following command to retrieve your Grafana user ID:

curl --request GET \
--url '<SCW_PROJECT_ID>' \
--header 'X-Auth-Token: $SCW_SECRET_KEY'

An output with a list of all Grafana users associated with your Cockpit and their IDs should display:

"total_count": 3,
"grafana_users": [
"id": 74,
"login": "user1",
"role": "editor",
"password": ""
"id": 8,
"login": "user2",
"role": "editor",
"password": ""
"id": 41,
"login": "user3",
"role": "editor",
"password": ""

Paste the following command to reset the password of the desired Grafana user. Make sure that you replace {grafana_user_id} with the ID of the relevant Grafana user.

curl -X POST \
-H "X-Auth-Token: $SCW_SECRET_KEY" \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
-d '{"project_id":"string"}' \

The output displays a new password for your Grafana user.


You can also reset a Grafana user’s password from the Grafana users tab of the Scaleway console > Click the «See more Icon» icon next to the relevant Grafana user > Click Generate password > Generate new password.
