Hi @did16

You should have a much better chance completing your goal with the new Unified Alerting in Grafana 8, which shipped today. It’s an entirely new alerting platform with much greater power and ease-of-use. And it includes much greater support for variables in alerts. It’s still behind a feature toggle until is’t more stable, but you should play with it:

Check it out:
docker run -p 3000:3000 --name=grafana -e "GF_FEATURE_TOGGLES_ENABLE=ngalert" grafana/grafana:8.0.2
