im having: an mimir Instance running and also an loki instance (and grafana) locally installed via docker. Mimir alerting is fully working via grafana and so its only for information that this is existing.
Im trying to use alerting in grafana and only want to use “mimir or loki alert” and NOT “grafana managed alert”. This is because i want later to backup all with mimirtool or also writing in alertrules with mimirtool if possible.
My point is that i can only see my datasource of type prometheus which is my mimir instance.
Loki Datasource is not showing any errors in grafana gui and its explorable and showing data which is getting in there.
My Problem: In Alerting i cannot create Rules for this loki-datasource because its not shown to select it.
I can see the sentence that therefore it has to be enabled the ruler api.
This ruler api is enabled if im requesting services:
query-frontend => Running querier => Running server => Running query-frontend-tripperware => Running ingester => Running memberlist-kv => Running distributor => Running compactor => Running query-scheduler => Running cache-generation-loader => Running store => Running ruler => Running ring => Running ingester-querier => Running usage-report => Running
Ruler storage is type local.
Does anyone have an idea what i have to do to get this working?
