I have Grafana Setup currently with mimir and loki with the mimir alertmanager.
Everything works good for managing mimir alerts, and if i create a yaml file on my loki server i can view the alert rules in grafana but i cannot manage them.
" Errors loading rules
Failed to load rules config from Loki: Ruler API is not available for Loki"
this is my ruler config:
The ruler API cannot modify rules when using local storage.
I don’t think we document this very well right now, unfortunately.
It’s a pity this error message is so vague.
Are you using local storage for Mimir, too?
Correct i am using local storage.
Maybe i can connect my ruler storage for Loki to my Mimir S3 Storage and just use the same location(bad practice though probably???)
I don’t know enough about how Mimir structures its rules to give a good answer, I’m afraid.
I had a look and Loki doesn’t allow you to configure a base path in the bucket for your rules, but Mimir does: Grafana Mimir configuration parameters | Grafana Mimir documentation (see
storage_prefix option), so maybe you could use that to share the bucket but not have the rules conflict.
