Not sure if you saw, but you need to enable ngalert explicitly in the config: Configuration | Grafana Labs

Thanks @svetb, my configuration says this.
[feature_toggles]

enable features, separated by spaces

;enable =

will this configuration not allow all features ?

Not sure if you had a chance to check the docs I linked to.

It will allow no features - or at least no alpha features.

Try enable=ngalert. Also make sure you remove the ; at the start of the line, since that would comment it out.

Thanks @svetb , it worked.
Updated the configuration(grafana.ini) and it worked.
[feature_toggles]
enable= ngalert
