grafana provides a much nicer UI than Prometheus, but Prometheus provides a more powerful alerting system featuring things like grouping/batching and silences across it’s dimensions. The alertmanager can route alerts based on labels and allows alerting on non-graphable queries. The overall pipeline also is faster since grafana needs to pull metrics from Prometheus while prometheus alerts get pushed on rule evaluation.
Therefor I’d like to keep the prometheus alerting but it would be nice if I could still edit both my dashboards and alerts in one place. Since adding such functionality is probably quite involved, I wanted to check in to see if anyone already though about this, maybe something like this is even already on the roadmap? If not, would this be something that could be accepted into Grafana or is so diametrical to the grafana alert design that it’s unlikely it would ever be added, even if we/I contribute the feature?
