Namespaces and groups

Alerts can be organized using Folders for Grafana-managed rules and namespaces for Mimir or Loki rules and group names.

Namespaces

When creating Grafana-managed rules, the folder can be used to perform access control and grant or deny access to all rules within a specific folder.

Groups

All rules within a group are evaluated at the same interval.

Alert rules and recording rules within a group will always be evaluated sequentially, meaning no rules will be evaluated at the same time and in order of appearance.

Note If you want rules to be evaluated concurrently and with different intervals, consider storing them in different groups.
