Did you enable it?

See Opt-in to Grafana 8 Alerts | Grafana Labs and the link to the config toggle in there

Yes, this was enabled.

I assume you also restarted your grafana server process?

If so, and if you still don’t see the new alerting, then your setting isn’t being picked up for some reason. Maybe check the Grafana logs during server start-up?
