Notes

Note

  • Notification channels are replaced by contact points starting Grafana 8.3 and this module is currently not able to manage contact points.

  • The module will report execution as successful since Grafana maintains backward compatibility with previous alert management, but

  • nothing will be visible in the contact points if new alerting mechanism is enabled.
