Grafana 8.2+ custom slack template

Hi all!

I’m thrilled that Grafana introduced templating in the new alerting engine, but I find it a bit disappointing that we don’t have full control over the slack message structure.

From what I understand all that I can template is the title and the body.

Is there a way to gain control over attachments/blocks/footer that slack is providing?
I was eager to drop our middleware for managing grafana alerts, but I don’t think we’re at this point yet.

welcome to the :grafana: forum, @hoyrak

Can you confirm: are you using the new Unified Alerting platform or the legacy platform?

Sorry for the late reply, the notification landed in spam.

I am using the Unified Alerting platform.
