Deploying Grafana on Openshift 4

OpenShift users want access to a Grafana interface in order to build custom dashboards for their cluster and application workloads. The Grafana that shipped with OpenShift was read-only and has been deprecated in OpenShift 4.11 and removed in OpenShift 4.12 . Since OpenShift uses Prometheus for both Cluster and User Workload metrics, its fairly straight forward to deploy a Grafana instance using the Grafana Operator and then view those cluster metrics and create custom Dashboards.
