This blog post shows how to enable Embedded reports using an automated script that significantly reduces time and complexity of the deployment. You can then import custom reports within Grafana.

Embedded reports are designed to provide users with valuable insights for their monitored infrastructure. They offer a wide range of dashboards such as Actions, Cloud, Containers, Virtual Machines, Network and more.
