Pause an alert rule
Pausing the evaluation of an alert rule can sometimes be useful. For example, during a maintenance window, pausing alert rules can avoid triggering a flood of alerts.
- In the Grafana side bar, hover your cursor over the Alerting (bell) icon and then click Alert Rules. All configured alert rules are listed, along with their current state.
- Find your alert in the list, and click the Pause icon on the right. The Pause icon turns into a Play icon.
- Click the Play icon to resume evaluation of your alert.
