Alertmanager data source
Grafana includes built-in support for Prometheus Alertmanager. 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.
Prometheus and Grafana Mimir (default) implementations of Alertmanager are supported. You can specify implementation in the data source settings page. In case of Prometheus contact points and notification policies are read-only in the Grafana Alerting UI, as it does not support updating configuration via HTTP API.
Provision the 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.
For example, this YAML provisions an Alertmanager data source running on port 9093, with proxy access and basic authentication:
apiVersion: 1 datasources: - name: Alertmanager type: alertmanager url: http://localhost:9093 access: proxy jsonData: # optionally basicAuth: true basicAuthUser: my_user secureJsonData: basicAuthPassword: test_password
