Any other ways to set alerts in Grafana?

I am new to grafana and I want to set alerts for string data… Is there any way to create alerts on other panels of grafana? Or are alerts only able to be created on just the graph panel.

Hi there - as mentioned in the docs only Graph panels can have alerts https://grafana.com/docs/grafana/latest/alerting/alerts-overview/

However if you’re using Grafana Cloud - there’s some new alerting functionality that lets you create alert rules without the Graph panel:


There’s also this doc on the differences between Grafana alerting and Grafana Cloud alerting: https://grafana.com/docs/grafana-cloud/alerts/
