Alertmanager data source
Grafana includes built-in support for Prometheus Alertmanager. It is presently in alpha and not accessible unless alpha plugins are enabled in Grafana settings. Once you add it as a data source, you can use the Grafana alerting UI to manage silences, contact points as well as notification policies. A drop down option in these pages allows you to switch between Grafana and any configured Alertmanager data sources .
Note: New in Grafana 8.0.
Note: Currently only the Cortex implementation of Prometheus alertmanager is supported.
Provision the Alertmanager data source
Configure the Alertmanager data sources by updating Grafana’s configuration files. For more information on how it works and the settings available, refer to the provisioning docs page.
Here is an example for provisioning the Alertmanager data source:
apiVersion: 1 datasources: - name: Alertmanager type: alertmanager url: http://localhost:9090 access: proxy # optionally basicAuth: true basicAuthUser: my_user basicAuthPassword: test_password
