How can I integrate Prometheus Service with third-party systems such as Grafana, Istio, and HPA?

To integrate Prometheus Service with third-party systems such as Grafana, Istio, and Horizontal Pod Autoscaler (HPA), you must obtain the API URL of Prometheus Service. Perform the following steps to obtain the API URL:

  1. Log on to the Prometheus console.
  2. In the upper-left corner of the Prometheus Monitoring page, select the region where the Container Service for Kubernetes cluster resides. Find the cluster and click Settings in the Actions column.
  3. On the Settings page, click the Agent Settings tab.
  4. On the Agent Settings tab, copy the URL next to Step 2: API URL.

After you obtain the API URL, add it to third-party systems such as Grafana, Istio, and HPA. For more information about how to integrate Prometheus Service with Grafana, see Import data from Prometheus Monitoring to a local Grafana system.
