Hi!

Do you get an error or something similar? If you click F12 and open the Network tab, is there anything red there? Have you set up a mail server? Could you maybe provide some screenshots?

Tobias, I appreciate your help. What it turned out to be is , my email was not added to the notification channel.

Grafana has a little box where you can type in your email to get notified in alerting. You save the page and its stays there.

If you go out of grafana log back in , my email is no longer there.

Now I am not getting any emails when I set it to fail on purpose.

I wish there were some diagnostic tool that could give me a clue as to why there’s no notification.

Thanks

Hi!

Did you try any of the things I mentioned above?

I believe that you have solved it already but for others:

You DO NOT add your email there.
Go to alerting channels, add a channel: name and email addresses. Go back to the dashboard and select the NAME of the alerting channels in the “sent to” field (it will open a drop out list) Then save it and done

Same thing was happening with me and when i changed my browser it simply worked. Seems some browser script issue.:slight_smile:
