Alerting Notification Channels API

Identifier (id) vs unique identifier (uid)

The identifier (id) of a notification channel is an auto-incrementing numeric value and is only unique per Grafana install.

The unique identifier (uid) of a notification channel can be used for uniquely identify a notification channel between multiple Grafana installs. It’s automatically generated if not provided when creating a notification channel. The uid allows having consistent URL’s for accessing notification channels and when syncing notification channels between multiple Grafana installs, see alert notification channel provisioning for more information.

The uid can have a maximum length of 40 characters.
