Action recommended: Update to using Grafana version 10 for Azure Managed Grafana

Published date: March 22, 2024

On 31 August 2024, we will retire Grafana version 9. Before that date, you’ll need to update to Grafana version 10 as soon as possible. Grafana 10 provides all of the functionality of Grafana 9 plus new ones, including: 

  • New visualization panels 

  • New or updated data source plugins 

  • Tracing and correlations 

Grafana version 9 will reach end-of-life support later this year and Grafana Labs will no longer provide security patches and other critical updates after that point. As a result, Azure Managed Grafana will stop offering Grafana version 9 as a supported software version on 31 August 2024. If your workspace is still using Grafana version 9 after 31 August 2024, it will be migrated to Grafana version 10 sometime in September 2024. You won’t be notified of the exact timing of this migration in advance.

You can still use Grafana 9 between 31 August 2024 and the date your workspace is automatically upgraded to Grafana version 10. However, during this period, Grafana version 9 will no longer receive updates from Microsoft.  

Recommended Action 

To avoid support disruptions, pleasewe strongly recommend that you manually upgrade to Grafana version 10 by 31 August 2024.
