Hiding vertical alerting markers on dashboard panels

Hi - I am in the process of setting up a few alerts in Grafana for a couple different dashboard panels. I noticed that it shows vertical markers for each “Alerting” status and each “OK” status. That’s great to be able to see when/where it triggered, however, it dirties up the panel-graph and makes it look more confusing such that I see a bunch of extra vertical lines when trying to look at the graph from afar.

Is there a way to suppress these markers?

Thanks.

Same problem here. How to disable it?

Any update on this? Alerts using conditions like diff are coloring most of the graph without any useful addition…

Yes, you can disable them now.

Go into the settings of the panel, choose “Panel” on the right, scroll down and open “Display” and disable “Alert thresholds”.

This seems to affect the horizontal lines showing the thresholds at which alerts change state. What I and I think the OP want to know is how to remove the vertical lines that show when this has happened. Zoom out a little and they obscure the detail that sometimes we want to to show.

I haven’t found a way to remove these. I even deleted the alert but the vertical lines still stick around.

Those vertical lines are just annotations. You can find it in dashboard settings → Annotations: Annotations & Alerts (Built-in):

So if you want to delete them, then just edit this annotation definition and disable it.
IMHO better is to disable Hidden checkbox and then you can disable/enable them directly from the dashboard:
