How to set notification reminders in Unified Alerting using Grafana 8+

Coming from Grafana 7.5.11 to 8.1.7, I’m starting to use the new unified alerting system.

There was a feature in 7.5.x Grafana notification channels that allowed a “Notification Reminder” to be configured so a reminder notification would be sent every X minutes that an alert remained in a triggered state.

I’m not seeing this functionality anywhere in the new unified alerting system. Did I miss it? If not will it be added again? It was handy to use as a periodic check-in heartbeat for grafana liveness.

Thank you! Yup, I definitely missed seeing that.

Much appreciated.

I am new to Grafana, but I think you should create a new notification policy and override general timings :slight_smile:

I think this is the real solution. This did work for me.
