404 Errors loading rules when viewing AMP rules (alert/recording) in Grafana UI

I have posted this problem on Github (404 Errors loading rules when viewing AMP rules (alert/recording) in Grafana UI · Issue #43301 · grafana/grafana · GitHub) and was asked to post the problem in the community instead. So cross posting here as well.

What happened:
I imported an Amazon Managed service for Prometheus (AMP) as a Prometheus datasource on latest v8.3.3 (30bb7a93c). While the alert tab shows the list of the rules I had in AMP, it will always show the following error when it try to do GET call to the http://localhost:3000/api/ruler/1/api/v1/rules:

What you expected to happen:
Expected to render this page without an error nor 404 failure.

How to reproduce it (as minimally and precisely as possible):

  1. Add an Amazon Managed Service for Prometheus as a datasource
  2. Navigate to Alert tab

Anything else we need to know?:
FYI: All the other requests were successfully made, including

On top of the problems,
I have couples questions based on this situation:

  1. from the doc, it seems like grafana is expected to provide legacy prometheus api? I know AMP endpoint ultimately use prometheus prefix instead of /api/prom. I am curious if this is the reason why I have seeing such error?
  2. From the error message, it seems like I can enable ruler api? Curious if there is a way to define ruler api by myself?
  3. The error log also mentioned User has no access to any namespaces, is this a permission issue that I need to configure both my AMP workspace and grafana instance?
