Grafana new alerting api error

Im trying to create a Grafana alert using ansible task

  • name: Create Grafana Alert
    ansible.builtin.uri:
    url: http://localhost:3000/api/v1/provisioning/alert-rules
    method: POST
    headers:
    Content-Type: application/json
    Accept: application/json
    Authorization: Bearer {{grafana_api_token}}
    body_format: json
    body:
    AlertRule:
    Condition: “B”
    Data: alert_data
    ExecErrState: “Alerting”
    FolderUID: “vjefAN37k”
    NoDataState: “NoData”
    OrgID: 1
    RuleGroup: “Alerts Group”
    Title: “GrafanaAPIDashboard”
    for: “5m”
    register: alert_create_response

My “alert_data” variable is assigned as follows:

[
{
“refId”: “A”,
“queryType”: “”,
“relativeTimeRange”: {
“from”: 600,
“to”: 0
},
“datasourceUid”: “Z9K_66C7z”,
“model”: {
“expr”: “up{app="prometheus"}==1”,
“hide”: false,
“intervalMs”: 1000,
“maxDataPoints”: 43200,
“refId”: “A”
}
},
{
“refId”: “B”,
“queryType”: “”,
“relativeTimeRange”: {
“from”: 0,
“to”: 0
},
“datasourceUid”: “-100”,
“model”: {
“conditions”: [
{
“evaluator”: {
“params”: [
1
],
“type”: “lt”
},
“operator”: {
“type”: “and”
},
“query”: {
“params”: [
“A”
]
},
“reducer”: {
“params”: ,
“type”: “last”
},
“type”: “query”
}
],
“datasource”: {
“type”: “expr”,
“uid”: “-100”
},
“hide”: false,
“intervalMs”: 1000,
“maxDataPoints”: 43200,
“refId”: “B”,
“type”: “classic_conditions”
}
}
].

Im getting the following error and couldn’t figure out the problem.

fatal: [localhost]: FAILED! => {“cache_control”: “no-cache”, “changed”: false, “connection”: “close”, “content_length”: “114”, “content_type”: “application/json”, “date”: “Thu, 23 Jun 2022 13:37:01 GMT”, “elapsed”: 0, “expires”: “-1”, “json”: {“message”: “invalid alert rule: no queries or expressions are found”, “traceID”: “00000000000000000000000000000000”}, “msg”: “Status code was 400 and not [200]: HTTP Error 400: Bad Request”, “pragma”: “no-cache”, “redirected”: false, “status”: 400, “url”: “http://localhost:3000/api/v1/provisioning/alert-rules”, “x_content_type_options”: “nosniff”, “x_frame_options”: “deny”, “x_xss_protection”: “1; mode=block”}

What am I doing wrong? Any help would be appreciated.

Hi @tarakaprabhu, welcome to the :grafana: community.

Though I have yet not much expertise with alerting at the moment. But looking at the error log, seems to be not create or found the alert rule.

What grafana version you are using ? and are you running it e.g. on docker or a plain vm ?
